The economic benefits of schooling in New Zealand: comment and update


Winkelmann, Rainer (1998). The economic benefits of schooling in New Zealand: comment and update. New Zealand Economic Papers, 3(2):187-195.

Abstract

In this paper, I discuss the interpretation of qualification related income differentials from income functions that control for age rather than the theoretically more appropriate variable years of labour market experience. I reestimate income functions for New Zealand that were originally reported by Maani (1997) with changed specification, and I update her results by also estimating an income function with data from the 1996 census.
