Special Issue Information
Economics of Education was born from a union of economic and educational research, tied to a traditional approach reliant on the human capital and the economic analysis of education. It can be defined as the study of economic issues relating to education, and the application of the techniques, theories, and concepts of economics to any issue related to education.
This Special Issue will serve to give visibility to recent research papers using classical or advanced statistical methods applied to Economics of Education in general, as well as to other particular topics such as the evaluation of educational policies, the financing of the educational system, the relationship between education and health, gender, immigration and ageing. This Special Issue will become a valuable resource for applied data-driven research, which will be useful for other researchers, experts, policymakers, and practitioners, as well as society, in general.
Proposals should contain a significant statistical component for data analysis. In particular, this Special Issue welcomes statistically focused contributions that address problems involving large and/or complex data. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Comparative education;
- Financing of the education system;
- Evaluation of educational policies;
- Economic impact of education;
- Equity and inequality;
- Educational production (determinants of academic performance, school failure and drop-out decisions);
- Educational outcomes (labour and financial markets, economic growth).
