Further Tests of Screening on Education and Observed Ability.
Grubb, W. Norton
Economics of Education Review, v12 n2 p125-36 1993
Employers often use education and other ability measures as indicators of unmeasured ability dimensions. This paper presents tests of signaling, relying on differences in earnings functions for salaried individuals in screened occupations versus self-employed individuals in unscreened positions. Vocational associate degrees and high school grades are used as screens, with returns in screened positions. (23 references) (MLH)
