The role of educational attainment and quality schooling in reducing racial earnings inequality The role of educational attainment and quality schooling in reducing racial earnings inequality HOT

This brief is based on a working paper by Gideon du Rand, Hendrik van Broekhuizen and Dieter von Fintel, which uses the 2008 National Income Dynamics Survey (NIDS), containing detailed information about household welfare and individual labour market characteristics. Importantly, the survey captured the results of an optional numeracy test completed by a subset of respondents, as well as information on their schools’ historical Matric examination performance.
