Mapping the Labor Market: Earnings Overlap by Education Level

Grant Year: 2019


Aaron Yelowitz will identify the pathways to stable employment and earnings that exist for less educated individuals. Using data from the American Community Survey, he will identify individuals who did not graduate from college but have earnings that exceed those of college graduates in their geographic area in order to better understand the occupational pathways that can provide individuals with decent incomes. The project’s findings will be presented in a report and a series of policy briefs and articles.
