Deferred Costs and Economic Returns to College Major, Quality, and Performance.
Thomas, Scott L.
Research in Higher Education, v41 n3 p281-313 Jun 2000
Examined the mix of first-year earnings and college-related indebtedness in the context of institutional quality, academic performance, and major, using a multilevel earnings model that incorporated demographic, family background, education, and labor market variables. Findings suggest distinct patterns in graduates' earnings and debt-to-earnings ratios, which vary by academic major, grade performance, and type of institution attended. (Author/DB)
