Title:Employment experience of youths: Results from a longitudinal survey
Source:http://www.bls.gov/news.release/archives/nlsyth...
Date:2010
Organization:US Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics
Short Description:At age 22, women are more likely to be enrolled in college than men and are also more likely to have completed a bachelor's degree. Among 22-year-olds not enrolled in college, men are more likely than women to be employed in a civilian job or serving in the military. These findings are from the first 11 annual rounds of the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1997 (NLSY97), a nationally re- presentative survey of about 9,000 young men and women born during the years 1980 to 1984.
Annotation:At age 22, women are more likely to be enrolled in college than men and are also more likely to have completed a bachelor's degree. Among 22-year-olds not enrolled in college, men are more likely than women to be employed in a civilian job or serving in the military. These findings are from the first 11 annual rounds of the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1997 (NLSY97), a nationally re- presentative survey of about 9,000 young men and women born during the years 1980 to 1984. The survey provides information on work and nonwork experiences, training, schooling, income, assets, and other characteristics. The information provided by respondents can be considered representative of all men and women born in the early 1980s and living in the United States when the survey began in 1997.
