Occupational Outcomes for Students Earning Two-Year College Degrees: Income, Status, and Equity.
Lin, Yangjing; Vogt, W. Paul
Journal of Higher Education, v67 n4 p446-75 Jul-Aug 1996
Analysis of data from the National Longitudinal Study High School Class of 1972 found that having a two-year college education culminating in a degree or certificate (as compared to entering the labor market with no postsecondary education) improved individuals' occupational outcomes (income and/or job status), but left patterns of inequality between groups (males/females, blacks/whites, high/low socioeconomic status).
