Demographic and Social Accounting and Its Application to Educational Activities.
Farine, Avigdor
The study of manpower requirements has received much attention since 1960, but it may be argued that the results of these studies did not come up to the expectations of those involved in the conduct of manpower research. The high percentage of unemployed professionals we are now experiencing brings us to formulate vigorous objections toward certain economic theories concerning the rate of return on education. The expectations of higher education would be less deceiving if a body of information were provided to people concerned. For example, research results about graduates or drop-outs at the beginning of their earning careers would be beneficial. This study would follow up the students in their year-to-year progression, in their graduation and their integration into the labor force. Such a study would not consider university dropouts as wastage but would follow up these human resources so as to know the reasons why they quit school and to clarify to what extent their partial studies helped them in their jobs.
