EDUCATION AND LABOUR MARKET OUTCOMES: EVIDENCE FROM BRAZIL

By Geraint Johnes, Aradhna Aggarwal, Ricardo Freguglia and Gisele Spricigo

Abstract

The effect of education on labour market outcomes is analysed using both survey and administrative data from The Brazilian PNAD and RAIS-MIGRA series, respectively. Occupational destination is examined using both multinomial logit analyses and structural dynamic discrete choice modelling. The latter approach is particularly useful as a means of evaluating policy impacts over time. We find that policy to expand educational provision leads initially to an increased take-up of education, and in the longer term leads to an increased propensity for workers to enter non-manual employment.occupation, education, development
