Abstract

In 2000, the OECD-European Investment Bank examined the various benefits that education has caused. In the study, the nine major net outcomes of education have been discussed: Increments to earnings, Better private and public health, Lower fertility rates, Democratisation, Political stability, Social benefit of education, lower crime rates. In this study, the above-mentioned major net outcomes effect of education has been examined in Turkey. As an education input, raw scores obtained from the results of 1996 Student Selection Examination and Student Placement Examination provinces were taken, and the number of students per teacher and per branch was made. Considering that it is a process to take the results of the education, the data on the most recent years available for the nine major net outcomes have been used. Nonlinear Canonical Correlation Analysis was applied to specify the relationship between the variables considered to represent the nine major net outcomes and the input variables. It is seen that the number of students per teacher is significant in the study, and foreign investments are also high in the ones with high scores in the courses in the numerical field.
