Some Quick Hits

Econ PhD
More info on grad school in economics over at Marginal Revolution.

Data on the not so sacred institution of marriage. (via Newmark's Door)

Teaching Economics
A great piece on how to put passion back into the first econ classes, from the Idea Shop.

Social Desireabilty Bias
We know people over report exercise and under report drug use on surveys, but it turns out they also over report church attendance. The Idea Shop provides the links, and remember that next time someone cites data about church attendance.
