Determinants of Early Labor Market Success among Young Men: Race, Ability, Quantity and Quality of Schooling.
Kohen, Andrew I.
This study examined the effects of several hypothesized determinants of early labor market success among out-of-school young men. Variables measured included: (1) success (in terms of hourly earnings), (2) social status of occupation, and (3) unemployment. Pre-hypothesized success factors upon which variables were based were: (1) socioeconomic background, (2) health, (3) race, (4) mental ability, and (5) quantity and quality of schooling. Multiple regression analyses was used to test the hypotheses. Generated in the study were estimates of the qualitiative impact of current racial discrimination in the labor market based primarily upon data obtained from the 1966 file of the National Longitudinal Surveys Project whose subjects were males between the ages of 18 to 24 and who had completed at least eight years of schooling.
