Colleges and Earnings.
Alwin, Duane F.; And Others
This document assesses college effects on earnings 8 to 10 years following graduation from high school. The sample group included male Wisconsin high school seniors in 1957 who had some college experience between 1957 and 1964 and who were alive, not enrolled in any school, and not on active duty with the armed forces in 1964. A total of 1198 men with college information available met the eligibility criteria. Results concerned: the variations in earnings from one school to the next; how these variations compare to institutional differences in the chances of graduating from college or entering a high-status occupation; the effect of institutional environment on earnings as compared to the effect of background, ability, or high school experiences; the extent of college differences in earnings; the mechanisms by which colleges affect earnings, and the effects of colleges on earnings as a reflection of differences in institutional quality.
