Settling the counterfactual debate: Is there a preferable counterfactual when estimating the returns to vocational qualifications?

Taal: EN

Gepost door NSS UK

This is the Centre for Vocational Education Research (CVER) Research Discussion Paper 013 on whether it is possible to identify an ‘optimal’ counterfactual based on observable characteristics.

Using information from the Longitudinal Education Outcomes (LEO) data set, it is now possible to compare the characteristics and estimates for learners with different qualifications encompassing both types of counterfactuals used in the extant literature: learners in possession of qualifications at the ‘level-below’ and learners enrolling in similar vocational qualifications but failing to achieve (‘non-achievers’). In this analysis we adopt a Propensity Score Matching (PSM) method to assess whether it is possible to identify an ‘optimal’ counterfactual based on observable characteristics.
