    This paper finds that over 1950–1990, workers were absorbed through within-industry increases in the schooling intensity of production, rather than a shift in the industry composition towards more schooling-intensive industries.

    How much would output increase if underdeveloped economies were to increase their levels of schooling? We contribute to the development accounting literature by describing a non-parametric upper bound on the increase in output that can be generated by more levels of schooling. The advantage of our approach is that the upper bound is valid for any number of schooling levels with arbitrary patterns of substitution/complementarity.
