Tracking the Returns to Education in the 1990s. Bridging the Gap between the New and Old Current Population Survey Education Items.
Frazis, Harley; Stewart, Jay
Journal of Human Resources, v34 n3 p629-41 Sum 1999
Because the Current Population Survey changed its educational attainment questions in 1992, this paper presents a method for adjusting earnings at different educational levels to make pre- and post-1992 data comparable. The adjustments reduce the estimated growth in college/high school earnings ratios between 1989 and 1993. (Author/SK)
