Wage Premia for Education and Location, by Gender and Race in South Africa
AbstractDespite the lower quality of education provided Africans compared with whites in South Africa, the percentage wage gains associated with additional years of primary, secondary, and higher education are substantially larger for Africans than for whites in 1993, and they increase for both race groups at higher levels of education. The lower quantity (or political quotas) of education received by Africans than whites is a simple explanation for the wage structure documented in this paper.
