Changes over time in the return to education in urban China: Conventional and ORU estimates
MetadataShow full item record
Studies of the return to education in urban China have reported that this has increased overtime, and that females typically have a higher return than males. In this paper we adopt a framework provided by the over education/required education/under education literature, and the decomposition developed by Chiswick and Miller (2008), to investigate the reasons for these findings. The finding by Chen and Hamori (2009), from analysis of data for 2004 and 2006, of the return to schooling for males exceeding that for females, is also examined using this decomposition.
