Determinants and Consequences of Young Women's Access to Education in Kinshasa, Congo. Final Report to the Small Grants Program.
A study analyzed data from a series of five household socioeconomic surveys carried out in Kinshasa, Congo, over the period from 1955 to 1990. Results indicated that schooling and educational attainment of both females and males increased substantially over this period, and particularly so for young women. Research analysis provides a detailed overview of changes over time in young women's access to education, as well as multivariate analyses of determinants of access to schooling. Several key consequences of young women's increased educational attainment are also analyzed, including post-school employment activity, fertility, and children's schooling. (BT)
