Years for Decision: A Longitudinal Study of the Educational and Labor Market Experience of Young Women. Volume Two.
Roderick, Roger D.; Davis, Joseph M.
Conducted as part of a 5-year longitudinal study of 5,159 young women in the national civilian noninstitutional population who were 14 to 24 years of age at the time of the initial (February 1968) interview, this progress report contains the results of the second interview and describes the magnitude and patterns of changes in personal, educational, and labor market experience that have occurred since the initial interview. Of those originally interviewed in 1968, 96 out of 100 were reinterviewed in 1969, and analysis of this data revealed that: (1) Black girls were more likely than white girls to drop out of school before completing the twelfth grade, (2) Approximately three in ten young women had revised their educational goals with one in eight raising their goals and one in six lowering their goals, (3) Approximately one-third of the young women employed at the time of both suveys made at least one interfirm move during the period, (4) job changes were associated with larger increases in hourly wages and with increased job satisfaction, and (5) White young women have substantially more labor market knowledge than black young women. Results of the initial survey are reported in ED 049 376. (SB)
