Education and Labour Market in the OECD-CERI Educational Indicators Project.
The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD-CERI) Educational Indicators Project (INES), initiated in 1988, is described in this paper, which focuses on the development of "Network B" to study education and labor market destinations (Network B is one of four networks set up by the project, each of which was assigned a different domain for development). Experts from 18 OECD countries participated--Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Following a brief introduction, the project classifications, conventions, and indicators are described. The next part presents findings on general educational attainment and its relationship to gender, labor force status, and earnings variations. Findings suggest that unemployment is higher for youth and women and that differentials in incomes by level of educational attainment tends to be greater for women than for men. At some educational level, men have somewhat higher earnings than do women. Wide variations in general education attainment exist among countries. Seven tables are included. The appendix contains definitions of the study variables and formulas for calculating data. (LMI)
