The Impact of College Timing on Earnings.
Monks, James
Economics of Education Review, v16 n4 p419-23 Oct 1997
Adult students (25 years old and over) currently constitute 43% of all college students. This paper investigates the importance of college timing in determining earnings. Findings show that those who complete college at a later age receive a significantly smaller initial earning increase than those who acquire their education earlier in life. Human capital implications are discussed. (MLH)
