Do Academically Deficient Scholarship Athletes Earn Higher Wages Subsequent to Graduation?
Olbrecht, Alexandre
Economics of Education Review, v28 n5 p611-619 Oct 2009
In this paper, data from the Baccalaureate & Beyond 93/97/03 survey is used to estimate the effects on the earnings of scholarship athletics participants subsequent to graduation. Former college athletes are found to have higher wages on average. Upon first glance, colleges and universities could use these results to argue on behalf of investments in athletics. However, by using quantile regression, it is shown that the positive wage premiums are not equivalent for all college athletes. (Contains 4 figures and 4 tables.)
