The Internal Rates of Return to Tertiary education for Swedish born males and females in 2005: With and without taxes, with respect to the current earned income tax credit.
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Combining the mincer equation with economic theories and prior studies has enabled the essay to shed additional light of the profitability to invest in four years of academic studies, which has been collected through a well-representative database of the Swedish population: LINDA1. The results show that the internal rate of a tertiary degree equivalent to four years in 2005 witnessed a rise when taxes are included compared to without taxes. It also indicates that the current earned income tax credit decreases the rate levels. By referring to prior studies the main conclusion could be drawn toward an accelerated demand for higher educated individuals.
