The Importance of Functional Literacy: Reading and Math Skills and Labour Market Outcomes of High School Drop-outs (2006)

This study examines how literacy and numeracy skills affect the performance of Canadian high school dropouts in the labour market.

The authors note that their research shows these skills have significant effects on the probability of being employed and on the hours and weeks of work for both men and women. They also have a strong direct influence on the incomes of men, but not of women.
