Educational Investments and Returns for Women and Men in Côte d'Ivoire
Do women in the labor market enjoy the same returns to their human capital investments as men do? Is the different treatment of women in the labor market a cause for the lower educational attainment so often observed among women in the Third World? This paper estimates wage and nonfarm self-employment earnings functions, corrected for selectivity bias based on a choice model of three regions and four employment modes. In Côte d'Ivoire, rates of return to education are high for both men and women, but men's wages exceed women's by a substantial margin for all but the most educated.
