Great Expectations: Variations in Income Expectations among College Seniors.
Smith, Herbert L.; Powell, Brian
Sociology of Education, v63 n3 p194-207 Jul 1990
Reports 1985 data on college seniors' income expectations for themselves, college peers, and high school peers who did not attend college. Finds that male and female respondents had informed expectations about other graduates' earnings, but differed sharply in expectations about their own incomes, with men being more likely than women to self-enhance.
