The economic benefits of schooling in New Zealand: Comment and update

Rainer Winkelmann ()

New Zealand Economic Papers, 1998, vol. 32, issue 2, 187-195

Abstract: In this paper, I discuss the interpretation of qualification related income differentials from income functions that control for age rather than the theoretically more appropriate variable years of labour market experience. I re-estimate income functions for New Zealand that were originally reported by Maani (1997) with changed specification, and I update her results by also estimating an income function with data from the 1996 Census.
