How convincing is the evidence linking education and income? by Orley Ashenfelter( Book )

28 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent research has studied the link between schooling and income. Evidence indicates the strong relationship found between level of education and lifetime earnings levels. Labor economists have designed studies and measured educational outcomes to differentiate between earnings associated with innate ability and earnings associated with investments in education. A series of studies to control ability using intrafamily measures, including surveys of fathers, sons, brothers, and twins attending an annual convention of twins, helps to identify the relatively robust finding that returns to education average around 10 percent. Other "natural" experiments using time of year of birth and compulsory school attendance laws and draft lottery numbers from the Vietnam War era also shed light on the magnitude of educational effects and support the 10 percent figure. (Appendixes include eight footnotes and three figures.) (YLB)

The Handbook brings together a systematic review of the research topics, empirical findings, and methods that comprise modern labor economics. It serves as an introduction to what has been done in this field, while at the same time indicating possible future trends which will be important in both spheres of public and private decision-making. Part 1 is concerned with the classic topics of labor supply and demand, the size and nature of the elasticities between the two, and their impact on the wage structure. This analysis touches on two fundamental questions: what are the sources of income inequality, and what are the disincentive effects of attempts to produce a more equal income distribution? The papers in Part II proceed from the common observation that the dissimilarity in worker skills and employer demands often tempers the outcomes that would be expected in frictionless labor markets. And the last section of the Handbook deals explicitly with the role of institutional structures (e.g. trade unions) that now form an important part of modern labor economics

What factors affect the ways individuals participate in labor markets? "New Developments and Research on Labor Markets" (volume 4B) proposes answers to this and other questions on important topics of public policy. Leading labor economists demonstrate how better data and advanced experiments help them apply economic theory, yielding sharper analyses and conclusions. The combinations of these improved empirical findings with new models enable the authors of these chapters to reveal how labor economists are developing new and i
