Inequality in Education and Income Across Countries

Walid Alali

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: This paper examines the relationship between educational inequalities to income inequality cross-countries, using Gini Coefficient and Cobb-Douglas (CD) production function. It reinforces the future vision of the literature on this subject by utilising the most recent cross-section data. We create a new combination of controls for both the labour market and socio-political. There are country-specific variables that can have an effect on each of them, and thus make it difficult to assess income inequality across countries. Considering these difficulties, the structural components of each country were controlled. Separate regressions are performed that takes into account the level of country development.
