Document Number: 9488The College Payoff: Education, Occupations, Lifetime Earnings - A college degree pays off--but by just how much? In this report, the authors examine not just what a college degree is worth but also what else besides a degree might influence an individual's potential earnings. The report examines lifetime earnings for all education levels and earnings by occupation, age, race/ethnicity and gender. Clearly, a college degree is key to economic opportunity, adding substantially higher earnings on those with credentials than those without. An executive summary is also available.
