The Labour Market Returns to Education in China


School of Business

About the Project

This is an empirical analysis of the effect of education and training on labour market returns in China. The conventional multivariate regression analysis will serve as a benchmark. However, modern programme evaluation methods will be used to estimate the causal effect of education on various labour market outcomes.
