Tyler, John H.; Murnane, Richard J.; Willett, John B.
Journal of Human Resources, v35 n4 p748-54 Fall 2000
For high school dropouts who last attempted the General Educational Development (GED) test in Florida and New York in 1989-1990, earnings of those without GEDs, least-skilled GED holders, and highest-skilled GED holders were compared. Higher GED scores were associated with higher earnings, except for white males. These earnings differences were as large for minority as white dropouts. (SK)
