Changes in the Determinants of Employer-Funded Training for Full-Time Employees in Britain, 1984-1994
The determinants of employer-funded training are examined for 1984, 1989, and 1994 using data from the Labour Force Surveys of the United Kingdom. Logit regressions for each year are estimated for male and female full-time employees. Time-wise decompositions of the estimates suggest that the majority of the training growth over the period 1984-89 was attributable to changes in the demand for skilled labor by employers, rather than underlying changes in workforce characteristics. The opposite was found to be true for the period 1989 to 1994, with the (smaller) increase in training driven by changes in workforce characteristics. Copyright 1998 by Blackwell Publishing Ltd
