Returns to Education Across the Life Course

The fifth pillar deals with returns to education over the life course. The NEPS does not just conceive returns to education in terms of qualification-specific remuneration and labor-market opportunities. It views them in a broader sense that includes, for example, political participation, active involvement in society, physical and mental health, opportunities for seeking a partner and starting a family, and subjective well-being. Some of these returns, such as physical and mental health or a student's active involvement in society, can be assessed long before entry into the labor market. As a result, these can also be documented and analyzed in terms of their life-course-related development.
