Industry Choice and Within Industry Earnings Effects
This working paper from the Network research team led by Dr. Shaun Dougherty examines the effects of attending a school in the Connecticut Technical Education and Career System (CTECS) on students' industry of employment and within industry earnings premiums. The paper looks at students who applied to CTECS between 2006 and 2011. The findings show that attending a CTECS school shifted male students toward higher paying industries that aligned with CTECS programs of study. For female students, however, attending a CTECS school produced a shift toward lower paying industries. See related resources.
