In this study, the research team is examining the college enrollment, persistence, and educational and employment outcomes of Ohio students by using state administrative data matched with employment records. The sample includes all the students who have ever enrolled in Ohio’s colleges. The research team is also making comparisons across the relative value of different sectors (e.g., technical colleges, community colleges, universities) in retraining workers. The research aims to identify whether traditional two-year colleges and technical two-year colleges have been successful in helping workers overcome job loss and shifting skill demands through retraining programs. The study also considers how earnings trajectories evolve differently over time for individuals with different postsecondary experiences.
