This dataset contains the mathematics and reading z-scores of a Colombian standarized test called "Saber 11", along with students' and students' household characteristics. It includes a dummy variable equal to 1 if a student was living in a municipality for which the number of dengue cases per 100,000 inhabitants was zero in the years 2008 and 2009, but positive in the year 2010. The data covers the period 2008-2013 and it is restricted to municipalities located at or below 1,200 meters above the sea level (as dengue disease is more common at these altitudes).
