Recent Dynamics of Returns to Education in Transition Countries

Tom Coupé and Ganna Vakhitova ()

No 39, Discussion Papers from Kyiv School of Economics

Abstract: This study provides recent estimates of returns to education in transition countries, investigating how the economic boom in the region has affected these returns. We find that transition countries continue to have relatively low returns to education and that the economic boom did not lead to a clear change in these returns. A more detailed investigation for one specific country, Ukraine, confirms these results.
