The Influence of Higher Education Institutions on Labor Market Outcomes
Berggren, Caroline
European Education, v42 n1 p61-75 Spr 2010
In this study, different institutions of higher education and their effects on employment opportunities for professionals in Sweden are compared and analyzed. The availability of extensive, longitudinal register data made it possible to determine a match between degree and occupation for higher education graduates aged twenty-six to twenty-eight years (N = 8,675). Multiple multinomial regression analysis was used. In line with previous research, a degree from an old and well-established university was most likely to lead to a matching occupation. The results were significant also after having controlled for type of degree, family background, and educational achievement, among other factors. (Contains 3 tables.)
