Determinants of Youth Earnings: The Case of Harare
MetadataShow full item record
This article investigates the factors that are important in determining youth earnings in the formal sector in Harare. The theoretical approach adopted is the human capital theory. Youth earnings are regressed against a number of human capital variables, personal characteristics variables as well as socio-economic variables. The model is applied to a particular age group. The results suggest that human capital variables are important determinants of youth earnings in the formal sector. These include the number of years spent in education, the highest level of education achieved and the choice of subjects at GCE ‘O’ level.
