Title:  College Quality and the Earnings of Recent College Graduates
Description: This report examines the association between factors such as selectivity and other institutional characteristics, and the earnings of recent college graduates 5 years after graduation. To address these issues, data from the 1980 High School and Beyond (HS&B) study were combined with information about courses, grades, credits, and credentials contained in the Post Secondary Education Transcript Study (PETS) as well as additional data from the Integrated Postecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) on institutional characteristics and from the College Board's Annual Survey of Colleges.
