Objetivo

Deliverables

  • 1st Summer School

    Methodological summer school for PhD students with options to present students’ own research.

  • research paper –School choice, school effectiveness

    Little is known about the efficiency of the various school tracks in Hungary. The six waves of the National Assessment of Basic Competencies (with individual test scores and parental background as well as school level data) allows for such tests. We will test empirically (using various methods such as Data Envelopment Analysis and Stochastic Frontier Analysis) if schools in specific tracks are more/less efficient than others in different tracks.

  • research paper – Gender 2

    The analyses would look at the role of tracking on gender differences in educational attainment, and the role of competition in gender differences in choice of field of study. Women have caught up with men in terms of educational attainment in most industrialized countries, but they still largely differ in the content of study. While women are now more likely to complete a higher education degree than men, the distribution of college majors among college graduates remains unequal that results in differences of labour market success by gender.

  • research paper – School to work transition

    The measures and models which perform well in the analysis of the adult labour market do not seem to work satisfactorily for the study of young people’s scattered careers. The proposed research wants to use high-frequency administrative data for the study of how higher education students start their labour market career. A 6 years wide window covering 36 months before and after graduation could provide a detailed view of this period. Types of careers could be identified using sequencing methods. The results of the typology might then be used in regressions explaining a series of outcome variables like the probability of acquiring a steady employment status by the end of the observed period, downward mobility and earnings

  • research paper – Gender 1

    Low female/maternal activity rates (and low fertility rates) are a policy target in most EU countries, especially with the problems related to an ageing population. This issue is also related to the promotion of gender equality and enabling a better work-life balance. Cross-country comparisons based on Eurostat datasets (LFS, SILC), combined with various data sources on family policies can be executed, as well as national analyses. National analyses would rely on a recent policy changes, such as the increased kindergarten enrolment rate of 3 year olds in Hungary).

  • research paper – Vocational training

    The vocational training track was reformed twice in the past two decades in Hungary. The length and intensity of general education within this track was first increased and later decreased, accompanied by changes in compulsory education age. These policy changes provide a unique opportunity to assess the effects of general education on basic competencies measured by test scores, labour market outcomes and equality of opportunity. We use data from administrative datasets (student level standardized test scores and background data) as well as from the census using a regression discontinuity design to estimate the effects of the reforms in education on educational attainment, the match between education and the labour market and (initial) earnings after leaving education.

  • Website

    The website will function as a key tool for internal communication and coordination as well as a tool for external communication. A password restricted project intranet will be created for project members for organizing research visits, sharing documents, drafts of discussion papers and data. As the research WPs are interrelated it is essential that researchers get to know in time the dates of the research visits of other members of the project so as they can coordinate their own research accordingly. Project intranet will function as a platform of cooperative work on project documents, publications and reports, as well as monitoring the progress of the project. Other tools for internal dissemination of the results will be the scientific workshops. The public project website will aim all target groups of external dissemination. The website will link the participating institutions websites, working paper series, the activities organized within the project, and other relevant websites (e.g. from other European projects, other research groups and best evidence encyclopaedia). Community webpages (e.g. Facebook and Twitter) will also be created aiming the wider public, and particularly people interested in economics of education research. Once the project is finished, CERSHAS guarantees the continuation of the website as it will provide a platform for its work on education economics.
