Murnane, Richard J.; Willett, John B.; Boudett, Kathryn Parker
Evaluation Review, v23 n5 p475-502 Oct 1999
Data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth show that acquisition of the General Educational Development (GED) credential results in wage increases for dropouts who left school with weak skills, but not for those who left with strong skills. Postsecondary education and training are associated with higher wages for male dropouts. (SLD)
