Stylized Facts about Workplace Training
This chapter documents stylized facts about the distribution of workplace training in Europe (and, when possible, OECD countries) by looking at the most recent cross-comparable datasets available. In respect of discrepancies, the picture that emerges from these datasets is compared with that observed in previous literature. Among the topics discussed are: which country invests the most in training; regional differences within countries; how employers and employees share the cost of training; the amount invested by employers in training; the type of individual with a greater propensity to take training and/or be trained by his/her employer; and the degree of differences across countries. Several large cross-country datasets that are available on OECD countries are used.
