Environmental Protection Agency, have been grouped into nine series. These nine broad cate- gories were established to facilitate further development and application of en- vironmental technology.
The research group studies to what extent and how educational chances are unevenly distributed among different social groups and to what extent individual characteristics as gender, generation, social origin, and ethnicity affect the opportunity to reach the various educational levels and degrees offered by contemporary societies.
Another set of important questions concerns the gain that individuals and society have from education. Finally, the group investigates how inequalities in educational participation and the returns to education change over time and vary between countries.
The Research Group is committed to address these issues in Research Teams concentrating on a number of specific issues. This State of the Art Report follows the lines of these focused efforts and essentially reports on the state of research in the following areas on which the Research Teams so far concentrate.
Rather than extending on the topics of these reviews, published inwe concentrate here on the issues 1 - 5 above that represent the main areas of present work of the EDUC Research Group. In this introduction, each of the topics is briefly introduced. After that the specific reports on each topic then follow.
The work of this team and the respective report is motivated by the fact that the structure of education and learning systems has changed dramatically over the last decades. The increasing complexity of educational systems, bigger choices between types of programmes and modes of attendance have imposed additional difficulties for the international comparability of educational attainment.
New forms of education have appeared and the boundaries that have traditionally separated different types of educational programmes have blurred. These structural changes in national education systems have brought about the revision of the original ISCED classification in ISCEDa new instrument for measuring educational attainment in large-scale comparative research, is a significant improvement over the earlier version of ISCED as it allows to measure in much more detail the level and type general or vocational of education and training.
In this sense it follows the theoretical conception underlying the CASMIN-educational scale that has become a standard instrument in much comparative sociological research. However, the validity and comparative quality of the new ISCED classification has not yet been thoroughly assessed.
As good comparable measures for education are essential for the research aims of the EDUC groups and the EQUALSOC network at large, the aim of the team is to conduct an evaluation and perhaps partial revision of this classification.
The experts examine whether the proposed coding path can be accepted as valid operationalizations of the distinctions among the various levels and types of education that are theoretically intended in ISCED educational typology.
Further, using OECD crosswalk tables, the ISCED educational classification is implemented in representative national data sources, such as the national labour force surveys or census data. Results obtained through this operation e. In future work, various further steps will be taken to validate the ISCED classification against the national educational classifications in multivariate analyses with education appearing as both independent and dependent variable.
The group will construct and test different models designed to link a range of various outcomes with education measured in the ISCED and national educational classifications.
The validation studies will also involve cross-national comparisons based on EULFS and ESS data and examine the consistency of results that are obtained from major national data sources as compared to results found and reported from international databases.2.
