Cost-Effectiveness of Training in the Developing Countries. Training Discussion Paper No. 19.
This document consists of an introduction, five sections, and a list of 12 references. The introduction explains why cost-benefit analysis is being applied to training in developing countries--even in those in which the expenditure for education has reached enormous proportions. The first section reviews the main providers and beneficiaries of education and training. The second section defines costs, outputs, and training effectiveness. The third section shows how cost-benefit analysis can be used to assess the effectiveness of various training activities in the formal sector (secondary schools and technical schools), and the fourth does the same for activities in the informal sector (traditional apprenticeship, training with production, nongovernmental organizations, and self-instruction). In addition, the fourth section includes information on the cost-effectiveness of training for women and three case histories of women trainees. The fifth section analyzes policies and draws some conclusions. (CML)
