The returns for education for the United Kingdom
This paper uses data from the General Household Survey to examine the economic returns to education between 1985 and 2003 for men and women in the UK. The evidence suggests that the returns to education have increased for men and declined for women. Quantile regression estimates illustrate that younger workers have come to experience more unequal returns to education across the conditional earnings distribution. The evidence suggests that both time spent in education and educational credentials are important in explaining earnings with higher qualifications always conveying higher earnings, holding years of schooling constant.
