Economic Returns to Education: What We Know, What We Don't Know, and Where We Are Going-Some Brief Pointers
Dickson, Matt; Harmon, Colm
Economics of Education Review, v30 n6 p1118-1122 Dec 2011
The estimation of the economic return to education has perhaps been one of the predominant areas of analysis in applied economics for over 50 years. In this short note we consider some of the recent directions taken by the literature, and also some of the blockages faced by both science and policymakers in pushing forward some key issues. This serves by way of introduction to a set of papers for a special issue of the Economics of Education Review.
