The effect of education on labour market outcomes is analysed using both survey and
administrative data from The Brazilian PNAD and RAIS-MIGRA series, respectively.
Occupational destination is examined using both multinomial logit analyses and structural
dynamic discrete choice modelling. The latter approach is particularly useful as a means of
evaluating policy impacts over time. We find that policy to expand educational provision
leads initially to an increased take-up of education, and in the longer term leads to an
increased propensity for workers to enter non-manual employment.
