Cohort Size Effects on Earnings: Differences by College Major.
Berger, Mark C.
Economics of Education Review, v7 n4 p375-83 1988
Examines effects of cohort size on starting salaries of college graduates from different areas of study. Increases in the size of graduating classes relative to the population depress their starting salaries relative to other workers. Smallest negative cohort size effects are found for engineering and business graduates, while the largest are estimated for science and liberal arts graduates. (Author/TE)
