Firm-Related Training Tracks: A Random Effects Ordered Probit Model
Groot, Wim; van den Brink, Henriette Maassen
Economics of Education Review, v22 n6 p581-589 Dec 2003
A random effects ordered response model of training is estimated to analyze the existence of training tracks and time varying coefficients in training frequency. Two waves of a Dutch panel survey of workers are used covering the period 1992-1996. The amount of training received by workers increased during the period 1994-1996 compared to 1992-1994. Evidence is found for the existence of training tracks in the amount of training courses taken. It is further found that the effects of individual characteristics such as education, age and gender on training should be treated as individual varying coefficients.
