Language Skills and Earnings Inequalities: Measurement Issues and Economic Explanations.
Lacroix, Robert; Vaillancourt, Francois
Language Problems and Language Planning, v11 n1 p35-45 Spr 1987

Analysis of data on the 1973 earnings of university graduates revealed that cross-tabular and multivariate results were quite different. The former method attributed other earnings determinants to language skills effects. (Author/CB)
