Essays on Estimation of Racial Wage Differentials Among College Graduates with a Model of College Choice and The Effects of High School Mathematics Skill Development on Economic Mobility
Abstract: The first essay in the dissertation is an estimation of unexplained racial wage differentials among college graduates in the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1997 cohort utilizing an empirical model of college choice and ability sorting. This work contributes to the literature on racial wage differentials and the economic returns to the business and economics majors. The second essay estimates the effects of high school mathematics skill development on the economic mobility of the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1997 cohort. This work contributes to the literature on the economic returns to mathematics skill development and economic mobility in the United States.
