Economic returns to education in Canada: CS13-556/1974E-PDF

"Regular measurement of the economic returns to education is important, not only because a large amount of public money is involved, but also because the returns are changing as rapidly as changes in the amount and kind of education acquired by the Canadian working force. This study represents only a beginning on a part of the information required by policy-makers to ensure continuously optimal allocation of public money to the various levels and kinds of education in Canada"--Preface.
