Rates of Return on Investments in Education 1890-1964.
Witmer, David R.
Although there has been a widely held impression that net benefits decline as more people seek and attain higher levels of education, investigations indicate that the rates of return have held roughly constant over a long period in the face of the universalization of secondary education and growing participation in tertiary education. The paper further explains the technique (formula) and data on which that conclusion is based. (Author/MSE)
