Employment and Earning Differences for Community College Graduates: Intersection of Gender and Equity
Goho, James
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Forum of the Association for Institutional Research (AIR) (44th, Boston, MA, May 28-Jun 2, 2004)
The economic benefits of postsecondary education are well established. However, there still seem to be differences in employment outcomes by gender or equity status. This exploratory research examined employment differences at the intersection of gender and equity status. Data were derived from a graduate survey and institutional records of a comprehensive community college. The influence of explanatory variables on employment and earnings were assessed through various statistical techniques. Findings suggest female/equity graduates have lower employment rates, are more likely to have part time work and earn less. This research suggests human capital theory alone may not explain differential occupational outcomes. (Contains 8 tables.)
