Economic Outcomes of High School Completers and Noncompleters 8 Years Later. Issue Brief. NCES 2007-019
Kienzl, Gregory; Kena, Grace
National Center for Education Statistics
This Issue Brief uses data from the National Education Longitudinal Study of 1988 (NELS:88) to compare the economic outcomes of high school completers at three different points in time with the outcomes of individuals who did not complete high school. Differences by sex and the type of credential earned are also examined. The findings suggest that individuals who completed high school within 6 years generally had more favorable economic outcomes than their counterparts who completed high school later or not at all. However, differences in economic outcomes were most prominent between males and females even after controlling for the timing and type of high school credential earned. (Contains 1 table, 1 figure, and 6 endnotes.)
