Simulation results suggest that improving school readiness may yield long-term education and earnings benefits


In this brief, we describe the Social Genome Model and review how we applied the SGM to simulate the long-term effects of preschool interventions later in the lives of children who receive these interventions. We then describe our simulated findings for five outcomes and share effect sizes across racial, ethnic, and sex groupings. Finally, we discuss important considerations for other researchers and outline how further simulations could expand the knowledge base on the effects of early interventions on later-in-life outcomes.
