题目：The relative and absolute labour market returns to different degrees in the UK–Evidence from the Longitudinal Educational Outcomes Administrative Dataset
摘要：By using the new Longitudinal Education Outcomes (LEO) administrative dataset developed by the UK Department for Education (DfE), which tracks English students through school, college, university and into the labour market, we try to disentangle the impact of a degree on earnings and employment outcomes from that of student characteristics, providing estimates of the impact of different degrees on graduate earnings. The LEO dataset provides a unique opportunity to do so by allowing us to account for differences in background and prior attainment between graduates who take different degrees. We estimate the relative labour market return - measured by earnings and employment 5 years after graduation - to different subjects, institutions and degree courses relative to the average degree. On the other hand, we also estimate the absolute economic value of degrees, comparing higher education students and graduates’ earnings with similar individuals at age 29. We find that the labour market returns to different degrees vary considerably, even after accounting for the considerable differences in student composition. Both the subject of degree and institution attended make a considerable difference to graduates’ earnings.
