dc.description Thesis (M.A., Economics) -- California State University, Sacramento, 2010. en_US
dc.description.abstract In 1995 California implemented a law banning the issuance of driver’s licenses to undocumented workers. Other states soon followed. This thesis presents an analysis of the effects of these bans on traffic fatalities. Data used in the study cover the 50 states and the District of Columbia from 1982-2006, yielding 1275 observations for each variable. Panel data techniques are used to control for state and time fixed effects. In doing so, we see that the results indicate that the laws prohibiting the issuance of driver’s licenses to undocumented workers is negative and statistically significant at the one percent level, suggesting that banning driving privileges to undocumented workers may have led to fewer fatalities. en_US
