The Link between Unemployment and Returns to Education: Evidence from 14 European Countries.
Weber, Bernhard A.
Education + Training, v44 n4-5 p171-78 2002
Estimates for 14 European countries used three models introducing unemployment, youth unemployment, and unemployment benefits respectively. Differences in unemployment probabilities at different educational levels and youth unemployment both appear to be important for a better understanding of the incentive structure behind educational decisions. Standard estimates that do not account for unemployment may be substantially downward biased. (Contains 29 references.) (SK)
