The Department of Labour (DoL) has released a report that investigates the effects of non-degree, provider-based tertiary education on the earnings of older learners.  This study uses the Employment Outcomes of Tertiary Education dataset, held by Statistics New Zealand which contains information derived from tax and benefit data collections and the education system.

Purpose

The analysis tracks people aged 25 and over who had some recent labour market experience and compares their earnings profile to a similar group of people who do not undertake further study.
