|Title:||Public Sector Workers' Willingness to Pay for Education and Training: a Comparison||Contributor(s):||O'Keefe, Sue (author); Crase, Lin (author); Dollery, Brian Edward (author)||Publication Date:||2007||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/3212||Abstract:||In the context of concerns about skills shortages and an ageing workforce, increased participation in education and training is often seen as a potential stimulant to increased labour force engagement. Despite this, relatively little is known about the trade-offs made in the study and training decisions of Australian workers. In this paper, findings of a study that employed a stated preference technique to develop empirical models of workers' choices are presented. Models are developed that reveal distinct stimulants and barriers for participation in study compared to training for Australian public sector workers.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Australian Journal of Labour Economics, 10(4), p. 279-294||Publisher:||The Centre for Labour Market Research||Place of Publication:||Perth, Western Australia||ISSN:||1328-1143||Field of Research (FOR):||140211 Labour Economics||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://search.informit.com.au/documentSummary;dn=580895232968674;res=IELBUS||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 197
