Youth and Work: Toward a Model of Lifetime Economic Prospects.
Carroll, Stephen J.; Pascal, Anthony H.
As part of an effort to reduce inequalities in economic opportunities confronting the young, this general model of youth behavior and opportunity was developed. Underlying the model are three sets of variables which influence economic opportunities: experience, perceptions, and opportunities. The relations between behavior at a point in time and opportunities over time are developed. With its emphasis on long run opportunities, the model has significant implications for policy analysis and program evaluation. (BH)
