Reynolds, John R.; Pemberton, Jennifer
Journal of Human Resources, v36 n4 p703-26 Fall 2001
Comparison of 15- and 16-year-old participants in the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1979 and 1997 indicated that racial/ethnic differences and the influence of family resources on expectations of a college degree declined over time. Girls became more likely to expect a degree, and family structure grew in importance over time. (Contains 50 references.) (SK)
