    In some situations, such as the United States in the twentieth century, it appears that improvements in the schooling of the labor force have made substantial contributions to economic growth. Google Scholar Meghir, C. Sincenearly 80 percent of high-school completers from high-income families the top 20 percent of income have enrolled in college the next fall. Most studies estimate that the return to one year of schooling is, on average, between 8 and 13 percent.

    In turn, workers with a high-school degree earned 42 percent more than those without any diploma. The issue remains one of the frontiers of labor economics. A central goal of many such estimates is to see if there are externalities to education on output over and above the private returns estimated from micro data.

Estimates of the economic return to schooling in the UK book

Abstract: Estimates of the Economic Return to Schooling for the United Kingdom The rate of return to schooling is an impor- tant factor in determining educational attain- ment and participation and, ultimately, wages and incomes. The world economy is benefiting from the expansion of trade and the rising productivity of countries abroad that are making great strides expanding both their infrastructure and the educational attainment of their workforces.

More schooling for more of the workforce could help cushion the impact of this demographic transition on economic growth by boosting productivity growth.

Shoven, The second situation is one in which income per capita rose despite stagnating education levels; factors other than improvements in educational attainment were generating economic growth.

Journal of Political Economy S7—S Conclusion Let me close by reiterating that education--lifelong education for everyone, from toddlers to workers well advanced in their careers--is indeed an excellent investment for individuals and society as a whole.Henderson, Polachek and Wang () relax the assumption of homogeneous rates of return to schooling by employing nonparametric kernel regression allowing the examination of the differences in rates of return to education both across and within groups – for example, they find.
