教育的達成における不平等 : 測定及び決定要因

By Prasartpornsirichoke Jirada


The main objective of this dissertation is to analyze an inequality in educational attainment. The author hopes to shed the light on the following questions: 1) what factors determine educational attainment and its inequality? 2) How does educational attainment and its inequality affect economic outcome? 3) Are there any existences of intergenerational transmission of educational attainment and its inequality? The dissertation covers national, provincial, and individual analyses. For national analysis (chapters four and five), the author uses the data of educational attainment from Barro-Lee and Cohen- Soto. For provincial and individual analyses (chapters six and seven), the cross-sectional data from the Household Socioeconomic Survey (SES) which was conducted in 2011 by Thailand's National Statistics Office was obtained for estimations. After the introductory discussion in Chapter one, Chapter two provides theoretical discussion. Definition of the key concept, inequality in education is identified in comparison with similar terms while its measurement is argued. In addition, theoretical approaches concerned such as the human capital approach, the intergenerational persistence in educational choices, and the wage regression are introduced. Next, more specific review on the empirical literature is conducted, followed by introducing the research methodology and the overall conceptual framework of this dissertation.……広島大学(Hiroshima University)博士(学術)Philosophydoctora
