dc.description.abstractA recent paper by Dollar and Kraay (2001) finds that higher primaryeducational attainment of the workforce does not increase the income ofthe poor except for its effect on average income. We test the robustness oftheir finding by using a broader measure of human capital that accountsfor international differences in the quality of education. Our findingssuggest that more quality-adjusted education does increase the income ofthe poor in addition to its positive effect on average income. Henceeffective education policies should be an essential component of anypoverty-reduction strategy.en_US
