Description

Within this publication, the focus is on the costs and benefits associated with preventive, intervention and compensatory measures of early school leaving examined in RESL.eu. It explores possibilities of performing a cost-benefit analysis within the context of the RESL.eu project. Cost-benefit analysis is a methodology that is commonly used to inform decision-making, either before a measure or policy is adopted or, at a later stage, to evaluate whether it is worth continuing. The rationale for exploring the possibilities of doing a cost-benefit analysis here is that early school leaving has become a policy priority, in light of the Europe 2020 benchmark. Informing researchers on how to proceed with a cost- benefit analysis with a view to formulate policy recommendations is, therefore, a valuable exercise. The aim of the report was to clarify how researchers could approach cost-benefit analysis in the early school leaving context, not to perform such an analysis. Despite the rich data collected in RESL.eu, a substantial amount of data that would be needed for a cost-benefit analysis is missing. Moreover, even if such data would be available, performing a cost-benefit analysis would remain a highly com- plicated task that would exceed the remit of this project. Therefore, the report’s aim is to equip re-searchers and policy-makers with the knowledge needed to do so.
