Education policy in developing countries by Paul Glewwe( Book )

14 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Almost any economist will agree that education plays a key role in determining a country's economic growth and standard of living, but what we know about education policy in developing countries is remarkably incomplete and scattered over decades and across publications. This book rights this wrong, taking stock of twenty years of research to assess what we actually know - and what we still need to learn - about effective education policy in the places that need it the most
Confronting poverty in developing countries : definitions, information, and policies by Paul Glewwe( Book )

12 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines several commonly used definitions of poverty. We first propose a definition based on the theory of welfare economics and contrast it with other definitions that are often used in empirical studies. We then examine household survey data from Cote d'Ivoire to see whether these different definitions choose the same people as poor. The general finding is that they often do not choose the same people. This implies that different definitions of poverty will often lead to different policy recommendations. The paper then provides a general discussion of poverty-reducing policies, and demonstrates the use of household survey data to formulate and evaluate specific policies

Estimating the determinants of cognitive achievement in low-income countries : the case of Ghana by Paul Glewwe( Book )

18 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this study was to assess the determinants of student achievement in middle schools in Ghana, with special attention given to school characteristics. A model of human capital accumulation which includes decisions on how long to attend school, which school to attend, and how much human capital to accumulate is presented. This provides a framework for controlling for selectivity into middle schools, which is often ignored in the human capital production function literature. Explicitly accounted for is the fact that many children attend school only sporadically, which reduces their cognitive achievements, but, according to the research model, is a rational response among credit constrained households. An estimate for the cohort of children aged 12 to 18 of the probability that they are in middle school, their choice of which middle schools to attend, and the determinants of achievement in reading and mathematics skills in Ghana's middle schools is calculated. In addition to specific findings regarding which school characteristics contribute to such achievement, the study reported some fairly strong evidence that sample selectivity was taking place and hence could distort estimates that do not account for it. Ten tables are included; two appendices are attached. (Contains 21 references.) (Author/LBG)

Delayed primary school enrollment and childhood malnutrition in Ghana : an economic analysis by Paul Glewwe( Book )

15 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study investigated why the primary school enrollment of children in poor countries is often delayed despite the prediction made by human capital theory that schooling will begin at the earliest possible age. Using data from the 1988-89 Ghana Living Standards Survey household questionnaire, the study examined the age of enrollment, height-for-age, family income, proximity to a primary school, and dropout rates of 1,757 children ages 6 to 15. The results indicated that delayed primary school enrollment was the consequence of nutritional deficiencies in early childhood. Child height-for-age was negatively associated with the duration of delays in entering school, and appears to be a causal factor in such delays. Proximity to a primary school was also a factor in enrollment delays. Family income and school fees had no significant impact on enrollment delays. An appendix contains definitions of the variables measured in the study and statistical regression results. (Mdm)

Child nutrition, economic growth, and the provision of health care services in Vietnam in the 1990s by Paul Glewwe( )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vietnam's rapid economic growth in the 1990s greatly increased the incomes of Vietnamese households, which led to a dramatic decline in poverty. Over the same period, child malnutrition rates in Vietnam, as measured by low height for age in children under 5, fell from 50 percent in 1992-93 to 34 percent in 1997-98. Disparities exist, however, between different regions, urban and rural areas, ethnicities, and income quintiles. This dramatic improvement in child nutrition during a time of high economic growth suggests that the nutritional improvements are due to higher household incomes. The authors investigate whether this causal hypothesis is true by estimating the impact of household income growth on children's nutritional status in Vietnam. Different estimation methods applied to the 1992-93 and 1997-98 Vietnam Living Standards Survey data find that growth in household expenditures accounts for only a small proportion of the improvements in children's nutritional status. The authors use data on local health facilities to investigate the role that they may have played in raising children's nutritional status in Vietnam
Economic Mobility in Vietnam in the 1990s by Paul Glewwe( )

10 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vietnam's high economic growth in the 1990s led to sharp reductions in poverty, yet over the same time period inequality increased. This increased inequality may be less worrisome if Vietnamese households experience a high degree of income mobility over time. This is because high mobility implies that the long-run distribution of income is more equally distributed than the short-run distribution, since some individuals or households are poor in some years, while others are poor in other years. The authors examine economic mobility in Vietnam using recent household survey panel data. The problem of measurement error in the income variable, which exaggerates the degree of economic mobility, is directly addressed. Correcting for measurement error dramatically changes the results. At least one half of measured mobility is because of measurement error
