Although the secondary education of males has positive effects on economic growth in some parts of the Third World (for example, in Asia and in the richer, less-developed countries), the effect of the secondary education of females is generally weak and nonsignificant. The inconsistency of secondary education effects (in terms of both gender and world region) leads one to conclude that the economic impact of this type of schooling (which is far more elitist, selective, and vocationally oriented than is primary schooling) is mediated, to a much greater degree, by demographic and labor force processes.

It is important to note that the quality, accuracy and comparability of GNP data have been questioned on several grounds. The biggest problem revolves around goods produced and services performed that do not pass (or have not passed) through markets, since the value of such goods and services is excluded from GNP estimates. In less-developed countries, where such transactions are particularly important, many workers make their livelihood in the ‘informal’ sector of the economy as small-scale vendors, porters, scribes, hawkers, and transporters (Portes and Sassen-Koob 1987).
