Teacher Attrition Using Univariate Frailty Model
Researchers and policy developers have done a lot of studies on the reasons fueling teacher attrition in secondary schools. I contribute to these findings by evaluating the influence of gender, marital status, teaching subjects, age, education level and place of residence of a teacher on the teacher’s decision to transfer out of a sub county. Univariate frailty model with covariates was used to model teacher attrition using information from simulated data. The study objectives were to; develop a frailty model for teacher attrition, evaluate the factors influencing teacher attrition using frailty model and to determine the trend on teacher attrition rate. All the factors under investigation were found to have a significant influence on teacher transfer decision except the place of residence. The study as well found out that there were other unobserved factors which influence a teacher’s decision to transfer out of a given region. The data used in this study was randomly generated. Information investigation was done utilizing R-3.2.5 rendition.
