Labor Market Information and the Choice of Vocational Specialization.
Borghans, Lex; And Others
Economics of Education Review, v15 n1 p59-74 Feb 1996
Investigates whether students of Dutch junior secondary technical schools anticipate future labor market situations. Introduces two extreme models: the cobweb and rational-expectations models. Uses estimation results to measure the information availability problem. Indicates large mismatches, due to unanticipated labor market changes. Suggests the need for additional public labor market forecasts to guide students' choices. (31 references) (MLH)
