Career Thresholds: Longitudinal Studies of the Educational and Labor Market Experiences of Young Men. Volume Six.
Kohen, Andrew I.; And Others
This volume focuses on young men whose ages span the years of transition from adolescence to adulthood, and analyzes a number of facets of their educational and labor market experiences over the period from 1966 to 1971. It is based on data from the National Longitudinal Surveys, collected by annual personal interviews with the same national sample of young men. Data include a detailed record of educational experience, information concerning first job after leaving school, a detailed work history during the survey period, and information about social, psychological, and economic characteristics of the respondents that are hypothesized to influence labor market behavior. Chapter 1 provides an overview of the 5-year period. Chapter 2 explores the factors related to the levels of educational and occupational aspirations expressed by those youth who were in high school at the beginning of the 5-year period. Chapter 3 analyzes the effects of various forms of investment in human capital on an individual's labor market position. Chapter 4 focuses on occupational mobility. Chapter 5 examines the unemployment experience of male youth, and chapter 6 discusses the impact of military service on a youth's subsequent labor market experience. Summary and conclusions are included in each chapter. Appendixes contain supplementary tables and instruments used in the studies. (TA)
