Education and Interstate Mobility

Judith Scott-Clayton–CCRC

This project uses national survey data (from NLSY-97) to examine labor market outcomes for individuals with the full spectrum of postsecondary experience, including no college at all. The research focuses on the correlation between educational attainment and patterns of interstate mobility, on how mobility evolves over time, and on the potential bias in estimating returns using only single-state employment data.

Research Findings:
