The Determinants of Training of Male and Female Employees in Britain

Oxford Bulletin of Economics and Statistics, 1993, vol. 55, issue 1, 103-22

Abstract: There is both a theoretical and a policy interest in knowing the determinants of who receives training. This paper first surveys the conclusions of existing British studies then uses data from the 1987 General Household Survey to examine the different determinants of training amongst male and female employees. It develops four possible measures of sex discrimination over training and calculates these measures in a logit model of training participation. A second model uses multinomial logit to distinguish the determinants of different types of training (on or off the job). A third model estimates the determinants of the time spent training. In all these models the estimated coefficients are broadly consistent with theoretical expectations. There is, in addition, evidence of considerable sex discrimination.
