Academic qualifications enhance high wages and productivity

Date published: 12 February 2009

The Department for Employment and Learning has published two new research papers, which investigate the link between qualifications and their impact on wages and productivity:

  1. The impact of educational attainment and Literacy Scores on Economic Growth and Productivity (Oxford Economics).
  2. The influence of graduate qualifications on average wages and productivity across the UK (Oxford Economics).

These papers are part of the Department’s Research Agenda 2004-07, and examine differences at a local, regional and national level.
