# Impact Of Education Economic Growth Of Pakistan Economics Essay

The effect of educational expenditure on economic growth is one of the key issues in economic literature. Educational expenditure is part of public expenditure and since after World War II public expenditures have increased in developed and developing countries. Over time, many economic growth theories and models (such as Romer, 1990 and Lucas, 1988) have developed relating education and economic growth. The belief, that education promotes growth has led governments of many developing countries to invest in the education sector. Even the theoretical literature also provides a backing for such a policy (Pissarides, 2000). However, the empirical literature has failed to establish a robust relationship between education expenditures and growth. India has been no exception. According to the economic theory, we will expect a positive causal relationship to exist between the two.

Economic growth is the increase in value of the goods and services produced by an economy. It is conventionally measured as the percent rate of increase in real gross domestic product, or GDP. Growth is usually calculated in real terms, i.e. inflation-adjusted terms, in order to net out the effect of inflation on the price of the goods and services produced. In economics, "economic growth" or "economic growth theory" typically refers to growth of potential output, i.e., production at "full employment," which is caused by growth in aggregate demand or observed output. As economic growth is measured as the annual percent change of National Income it has all the advantages and drawbacks of that level variable. But people tend to attach a particular value to the annual percentage change, perhaps since it tells them what happens to their pay check.

The aim of this paper is to establish a relation between education and economic growth in Pakistan. The study explores that improvement in education bring economic growth in Pakistan. There has been difference among researches about the positive or negative relationship between educational expenditure and economic growth while some studies indicates no impart of education on economic growth. Time series data from the period of 1981-2010 is used for the analysis and co-integration and error correction models are used to determine the long and short run relationship of education and economic growth. In this study, an attempt is made to determine the significance of education in economic development in Pakistan. The data has been taken from Misinstry of Education's website, Pakistan Economic Survey various issues and website of World Bank.

## Education Sector in Pakistan

Pakistan is an international outlier in terms of gender gaps in education. The education system in Pakistan is largely distributed into five levels: primary (grades one through five); middle (grades six through eight); high (grades nine and ten; intermediate (grades eleven and twelve, leading to a Higher Secondary (School) Certificate (HSC); and university programs leading to undergraduate and graduate degrees.

To augment the human capital different governments in Pakistan have taken numerous steps to improve the education and educational standards. According to the Education Statistics of 2008-9 Shows that literacy rate was high in urban areas (74%) then the rural areas (48%). Literacy rate in men are more the women's, as for men (69%) compared to women (45%). Province wise literacy rate indicates, "Literacy rate in Punjab is (59 %), Sindh, (59%), Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (50%) and Balochistan at (45%)". Total adult literacy rate show the figure of 57%. Preâ€Primary Education is a vital element of Early Childhood Education. An increase of 2.2% enrolment rate is estimated for the year 2009-2010. 156, 653 Primary Schools with 465,334 Teaching staff are functioning in Pakistan. An increase of 0.6 % in Primary enrolment (18.468 million) in 2009 compare to (18.360 million) in 2008. Statistics indicates that, 24,322 Secondary Schools with 439,316 Teaching staff are functioning in Pakistan. Moreover, the enrolment rate of 2.9 % (2.556 million) is observed in 2009-2010.

Pakistan has one of the lowest ratios in the world, of people having access to higher education in the country. National Commission for Human Development (NCHD) has planned to literate 82,500 adult literacy centers in three years (2009-12) to increase the literacy rate, however so far 26,000 literacy centers have been opened. Only 5.1 per cent of people aged 17-23 years are currently enrolled in higher education in Pakistan.

Pakistan is blessed with natural resources and talented individuals. Due to low employment opportunities, and insufficient research activities, a number of professionals have left Pakistan for the sake of healthier vocation and life. To tackle this problem of brain drain, during last few years governments have taken numerous steps to promote research activities and improve the quality of facilities in education institutes. Many scholarships programs have been offered throughout the year for higher education, including ingenious scholarship, special scholarship program for the students of Fata and Balochistan. At present 3,237 students are studying in HEC recognized universities. HEC has sent about 2,600 students for studies abroad under different foreign scholarship programs. In order to improve and promote research activities, 20 Research Laboratories have been established in major universities.

## Literature Review

Education is considered as a tool for economic advancement of any country. It is unanimously accepted that countries having developed human skills and capabilities tend to progress briskly. Education plays an essential part in developing human capital and accelerating productivity. The interrelation between education and economic growth has been discussed since ancient Greece. Adam Smith and the classical economists emphasized the importance of investment in human skills. In contemporary times when the focus is on the 'knowledge economy' the role of education becomes all the more important in the development of human capital. Several studies have investigated the relationship between economic growth and education such as Psaharoupolous, 1988; De Meulmester et. al., 1995; Jorgenson and Fraumeni, 1998. Their starting point was always the root of the economic growth itself. Over a period of time researchers have found a that correlations exist across countries between economic growth rates and schooling enrollment rates including enrollment in higher education, another group of researchers such as De Meulmester et. al. (1995), using more sophisticated econometric techniques, found that this relationship is not always a direct one.

Few empirical studies have tried to examine the relation between investment in human capital and economic growth. The relationship has been tested for countries such as USA (Jorgenson and Fraumeni, 1992), Pakistan (Aziz, Khan and Aziz, 2008 Tanzania and Zambia (Jung and Thorbecke, 2001), Nigeria (Ogujiuba and Adeniyi, 2005 and India (Chandra, 2010). The results from the above mentioned papers indicate that education expenditures do affect growth positively.

According to Bils and Klenow, (2000), "Countries having high rate of enrollment in schools made faster growth in per capita income because high enrollment rate causes rapid improvement in productivity". Hanushek and Kimko (2000) show that quality of education have a remarkable impact on productivity and national growth rates.

Chandra (2010) has tested for a causal relationship between education investments and economic growth for India for the time period 1951-2009 using linear and non-linear Granger causality methods. He found that there is bi-directional causality between education spending and GDP for India. Thus, it can be seen that overall, the empirical evidence regarding this relationship for India too is quite mixed.

Krueger and Lindahl (2000) say that a country which is improving its education policy is likely to change or improve other economic policies as well which will enhance its growth. That's why it can be very difficult to separate the effect of education policy from that of the other policies. If we look at the South East Asian countries with regard to the benefits of higher education for a country's economy, many observers attribute India's leap onto the world economic stage as stemming from its decades-long successful efforts to provide high-quality, technically oriented tertiary education to a significant number of its citizens (World Bank, 2004).

## Hypothesis

After doing literature review a below hypothesis is developed to check in Pakistani scenario:

H0: There is a positive relationship between educational expenditure and economic growth of Pakistan.

As per literature review and previous work above hypothesis has not been rejected. This research will check the hypothesis for the time period between 1981-2010.

## Methodology

The model used in this paper is based on aggregate output function:

LnY = Î± + Î²1Ln(EDUEXP) + Î²2Ln(LFPR) + Î²3Ln(GFCF) + Âµi

List of variables with abbreviations:

Ln = Natural Logarithm

Y = Real GDP

EDUEXP = government expenditure on education on education as % of GDP

LFPR = Labor force participation rate

GFCF = gross fixed capital formation

Âµi = Error Correction Term

Real GDP is nation's total output of goods and services, adjusted for price changes.

Educational Expenditure is government expenditure in lieu of education in country. It is part of Human Capital which refers to educational and health expenditure, the scope of this research is to find the impact of education on economic growth.

Labor Force is a key indicator of economy specially countries having large population or labor intensive countries. It refers to the number of skilled workers available to work.

Gross fixed capital formation or "GFCF" is a macroeconomic concept used as measure of the net investment in an economy in "fixed capital assets" during one financial year.

## Analysis of the Model

To check the hypothesis regression using OLS technique was run, below are the results of running regression on model:

LnY = Î± + Î²1Ln(EDUEXP) + Î²2Ln(LFPR) + Î²3Ln(GFCF) + Âµi

## Interpretation of Results

As per model Y-intercept is 2.36 which mean that Real GDP will have 2.36 growth when all of the variables of our model are '0' This is because GDP does not depend only on education even if there is no expenditure on education.

Coefficient of EDUEXP is positive which means that 1% change in EDUEXP will bring on average 0.41% change in Real GDP.

Coefficients of GFCG and LFPR are negative but as per priori they are supposed to be positive. This problem will be catered in later part of this report.

## Significance of Coefficients

Individual coefficients of all three independent variables are statistically insignificant.

## Coefficient of Determination (RÂ²)

Value of RÂ² is very low which states that approximately 7.76% variation in Real GDP is explained by Government expenditure on education as % of GDP, Labor force participation rate, Gross fixed capital formation.

The above graph tells us that residuals are right skewed and from the JB value of 4.49 with probability of 0.10 suggest that hypothesis that error terms are normally distributed is not true. This can happen because of our small sample size of 30 observations.

The above graph shows that actual values are not well fitted with the estimated which is the reason of low R2.

## Conclusion

The above regression analysis and its interpretation do not validate that education and economic growth has a long term relationship. Few results are against priori as well. In most of previous researches and literature available education has brought an economic growth in a given country.

We can also say that in short run education does not have relationship with economic growth because our sample size was just 30. Other dedection that can be made is since in Pakistan government has failed to create employment opportunities therefore after completing education people do not find jobs to contribute to the national economy and at times people go abroad causing brain drain in Pakistan.

Therefore government must attract international companies and local investors as well to create such ventures that could lead to the employment opportunities and ultimately increase in economic growth of Pakistan. Spending only on education will not contribute as such towards economic growth, there must be a system to accommodate and utilize those educated people for the best interest of country's economy.

## Remedies of Multicollinearity

## Dropping a variable and specification bias

Below are the results of dropping loggfcg from the model but still we can see that there is no significant increase in t-stat of logeduexp. Therefore we can say that dropping a variable will not be a good solution.

By increasing the number of variable or increasing the sample size, multicollinearity can be decreased.

## Detection of Autocorrelation

## Graphical Method

From the above graph we can see a systematic relationship among the residual terms. Therefore there are chances of autocorrelation.

## The runs test

## (+++)(-)(++++)(--)(++)(---)(+)(------)(++++++)(-)(+)

N1= 17

N2 = 13

Runs = 11

## Mean: E(R) = {(2N1 N2)/N} +1 = 15.7

## Variance: (Ïƒ)2R = {2N1N2(2N1N2 - N)}/{N2 (N-1)} = 6.97

## Standard Deviation: Ïƒ = 2.64

Prob[E(R) - 1.96ÏƒR < R < E(R) +1.96ÏƒR ]

Prob[10.525 < 11< 20.874]

Hence do not reject the hypothesis that the residuals in the model are random. Since number runs are many therefore there is a negative auto correlation.

## Durbin - Watson d Test

n = 30

k = 3

Durbin - Watson d stat: 1.657983

dL = 1.006 and du = 1.421

Below is the decision table:

Since d - stat is greater than du and less than 4 - du. Therefore there is no auto correlation positive or negative.

Comparing original model with Newey-West model we find that estimated coefficients and R2 are same, but HAC standard errors are much greater than results of original model's standard errors and therefore HAC t ratios are much smaller that original t ratios. This shows that original model has underestimated the true standard errors.

RSS1 = 2.245285

RSS2 = 0.261074

RSSR = 4.707053

RSSUR = RSS1 + RSS2 = 2.5

F = (RSSR âˆ’ RSSUR)/k

(RSSUR)/(n1 + n2 âˆ’ 2k)

After calculation we get:

F = 0.55/0.113

F = 4.86

F tab = 2.82 with Confidence Interval of 0.95

Since Fcal > Ftab

Therefore we do not reject the null hypothesis of parameter stability (i.e. no structural change).
