The Effects of Local Employment Opportunities on Youths' Work and Schooling.
Ribar, David C.
Economics of Education Review, v20 n4 p401-13 Aug 2001
Uses individual-level 1990 census data to estimate multinomial logit models (featuring county-level averages) of young men's and women's educational enrollment and employment behavior. Estimates indicate that high-school leavers are sensitive to earnings opportunities. For graduates, increases in current earnings modestly reduce enrollments and increase employment.
