Explaining Educational Attainment across Countries and over Time
Diego Restuccia (au); Guillaume Vandenbroucke (au)
In 1950, the richest countries attained an average of 8 years of schooling whereas the poorest countries 1.3 years, a large 6-fold difference. By 2005, the difference in schooling declined to 2-fold because schooling increased faster in poor than in rich countries. What explains educational attainment differences across countries and their evolution over time? The authors assess the quantitative contribution of productivity and life expectancy in explaining educational attainment. The model they use accounts for 90% of the difference in schooling levels in 1950 between rich and poor countries and 71% of the faster increase in schooling over time in poor relative to rich countries. These results suggest an alternative view of the determinants of low education in developing countries that is based on low productivity. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
