Direct measures of labor-force quality from international mathematics and science test scores are strongly related to growth. Indirect specification tests are generally consistent with a causal link: direct spending on schools is unrelated to student performance differences; the estimated growth effects of improved labor-force quality hold when East Asian countries are excluded; and, finally.

Hanushek advocates using economic analysis to improve student performance. Neri (), for example, used both quality and quantity of schooling to test the relationship between education and economic growth, but found that quality is significantly and positively.

Education, Labor Force Quality, and the Economy By Gary S. Becker* Education and other human capital are important in promoting economic growth and a strong position in international mar kets.

The U.S. needs to upgrade its average labor force quality. This paper presents a number of proposals to accomplish this goal. The level of cognitive skills of a nation’s students has a large effect on its subsequent economic growth rate.

Increasing the average number of years of schooling attained by the labor force boosts the economy only when increased levels of school attainment also boost cognitive skills.

Education quality and economic growth (English) Abstract. This study on education quality and economic growth aims to contribute to the World Bank's education agenda by communicating research findings on the impact of education quality on economic growth.

Economic growth can be defined as the increase in the inflation-adjusted market value of the goods and services produced by an economy over time. It is conventionally measured as the percent rate of increase in real gross domestic product, or real GDP.

Growth is usually calculated in real terms - i.e., inflation-adjusted terms – to eliminate the distorting effect of inflation on the price. A growth accounting approach offers the advantage that with basic estimates (or at least possible ranges) for trends in output, labor force, schooling attainment, and preferably capital stock and factor shares, it yields estimates of schooling’s contribution to economic growth.

The growing recognition by economists and others of the possibility that processes of economic growth and development may depend at least as heavily upon accumulation of human resources as upon growth in nonhuman inputs has led to much interest in education and labor productivity.

Growth in the labor force is one of two key determinants of the nation’s maximum sustainable, or potential, rate of economic expansion. For more than five decades, a growing labor force provided a sizeable boost to the potential rate of expansion in the U.S.
