Socioeconomic Background and Returns to Education. Working Paper 72-31.
Hauser, Robert Mason
The author concludes that there is no convincing evidence of differential occupational returns to education, except for effects of race and farm background. There is an interaction effect of fathers' occupational status, as well as race, with the returns to work experience in an equation for income. Findings are either negative or inconclusive between socioeconomic background and education among urban white men. In this major segment of the population, the benefits of education appear to go to those who have it, regardless of their social origins. (DM)
