Carnevale, Anthony P. – Trusteeship, 2012
As the United States grinds its way through a halting economic recovery, one thing has become abundantly clear: The recession of 2007 continues to reshape the economy in significant and permanent ways.

Carnevale, Anthony P. – Urban Institute (NJ1), 2010
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and the American Graduation Initiative emphasize Pell grant funding and focusing on community colleges and sub-baccalaureate degrees.

Carnevale, Anthony P.; Smith, Nicole – Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce, 2011
No one has had it worse than the Midwest. Job losses in the "great recession" of 2007 spared no region, but the bulk of industries hardest hit were in the Midwestern states. This is the second of a series of reports detailing the job and educational demand prospects for workers, by major census regions. When compared to all other regions, the loss…

Carnevale, Anthony P.; Smith, Nicole – New England Journal of Higher Education, 2010
The New England states, like the rest of the nation, are finally starting to show signs of a recovery from the Great Recession of 2008, albeit at different paces. Three of the states, however, still have unemployment rates that are about four percentage points above where they were before the recession began in 2007. Arising from this recovery,…

The question, as individuals slowly dig out from under the wreckage left by the Great Recession, is unavoidable: "Is college worth it?" The authors' answer: "Yes, extensive research, ours included, finds that a college degree is still worth it."

Carnevale, Anthony P.; Jayasundera, Tamara; Cheah, Ban – Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce, 2012

Carnevale, Anthony P.; Jayasundera, Tamara; Cheah, Ban – Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce, 2012
The Great Recession that began in December 2007 laid bare many of the shortcomings of the American workforce, especially the lack of workers with postsecondary education. A large majority of jobs lost in the recession and in the recovery had been held by workers with a high school diploma or less. The only real gains made during the still…

Carnevale, Anthony P. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2008
"College for all" arises from deep in our individualistic cultural bias, and the motto works as a public narrative because high school vocational alternatives are widely regarded as second best by the general public, if not by the elites. However, there is more to "college for all" than cultural bias, political positioning, and middle-class angst.…

Carnevale, Anthony P. – School Administrator, 2008
From the Civil War until the 1970s, the United States was the world's most successful mass-production economy, the very best at producing standardized goods and services at least cost and selling them at the lowest price. These mass-production successes required rigorous discipline and narrow skill. Final products and services were broken down…

Carnevale, Anthony P.; Rose, Stephen J. – Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce, 2011
The United States has been underproducing college-going workers since 1980. Supply has failed to keep pace with growing demand, and as a result, income inequality has grown precipitously. From 1915 to 1980, supply grew in tandem with demand. But, starting in 1990, the share of college-educated young people in the workforce rose very slowly. If the…
