Human Capital and Canadian Provincial Standards of Living (2006)

What determines the differences in living standards across economies over the long run? This is the basic question that the authors of this paper attempt to answer. More specifically, this paper examines the role of human capital accumulation in explaining relative levels of income per capita across Canadian provinces between 1951 and 2001. For this study, the researchers used two different types of human capital indicators based respectively on university attainment and literacy test scores and used data from the 2003 Adult Literacy and Lifeskills Survey.
