The economic returns to schooling are estimated using comparable microdata in 28 countries, worldwide. Considerable variation in rates of return is found across countries. There is no evidence for a worldwide rising rate of return to education from 1985 through 1995, Indeed, the worldwide rate of return declines slightly over this period. in general, instrumental-variable estimates (using spouse's and parents' schooling as determinants of schooling) are over 20% higher than ordinary-least-squares estimates.
