Schooling, Literacy and Individual Earnings (2000)

Statistics Canada and Human Resources Development Canada (HRDC) have sponsored a series of studies based on the International Adult Literacy Survey (IALS). The present study uses direct measures of literacy skill levels provided by the IALS to estimate the return to literacy skills. It examines the validity of averaging literacy scores across jurisdictions. It also sets limits on the proportion of the individual benefit of education that can be explained by level of literacy. The author focuses on the methodology behind measures of skills such as literacy.
