This review and synthesis of research focuses on studies of cost-effectiveness of vocational education. This paper represents an overview of the state of the art and includes (1) a review of the current conceptual and empirical problems of conducting a cost-efficiency or cost-effectiveness study of vocational education; (2) a review of the major findings of past studies of vocational education with special emphasis on the studies since 1970; (3) suggestions for future research on cost-efficiency and cost-effectiveness of vocational education. The author deals only with traditional, in-school secondary vocational programs and postsecondary vocational education programs, not cooperative educational and manpower training programs. (BM)
