Youth and the Labor Market. Analyses of the National Longitudinal Survey.
Borus, Michael E., Ed.
This collection consists of analyses based on data from the 1979, 1980, and 1981 National Longitudinal Surveys of Youth Labor Market Experience. In a paper entitled "A Description of Employed and Unemployed Youth in 1981," Michael E. Borus describes employed, unemployed, and discouraged workers between the ages of 16 and 21. Next, Tom K. Pollard examines changes in employment means and distributions in his article "Changes Over the 1970s in the Employment Patterns of Black and White Young Men." Discussed in an article by Michael E. Borus and Susan A. Carpenter entitled "Choices in Education" are the issues of dropouts, dropouts returning to school, and students going directly to college. William R. Morgan examines sector differences in quantity versus quality of schooling in his article entitled "Quantity of Learning and Quality of Life for Public and Private High School Youth." The next article, "The Economic Value of Academic and Vocational Training Acquired in High School" by Russell W. Rumberger and Thomas N. Daymont, compares the two types of training and examines their effects on labor market outcomes. Concluding the collection are an article by Ronald D'Amico entitled "The Time-Use Behavior of Young Adults" and an article by Joan E. Crowley entitled "Delinquency and Employment." (MN)
