This paper examines the growing college premium for younger men and the earnings patterns for other groups that developed between 1973 and 1987. At first glance, the rapidly increasing college premium for young men seems to confirm several frequently cited economic trends, including a massive restructuring of the economy that displaces all less educated workers into low-paying jobs and the devaluation of a high school diploma due to the deterioration of public education. However, a review of earning trends for all groups of workers suggests the influence of the following forces on wage trends: (1) shifts in the demand for different kinds of labor; (2) shifts in the supply of different kinds of labor; and (3) macroeconomic forces which determine the underlying trend in wage growth. The economic stagnation of the 1973-1987 period explains the slow growth of all earnings. However, most movements in relative earnings were not driven by changes in the supply of different kinds of labor. The earnings of older men and women performed better than those of younger workers because and demand for younger workers decreased during periods of adjustment in manufacturing employment. Much of the continued slow growth in wages reflects the sustained low growth in productivity which reflects our ability to educate workers. Statistical data are included on six graphs and eight tables. The appendices comprise discussions of the effects of alternative price deflators on real income and testing for the significance of earnings differences. (Fmw)

Notes on the changing economic status of children in the United States : 1970-1985 by Frank Levy( Book )
3 editions published between 1987 and 1990 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
This document comprises a preliminary study of the causes of children's declining economic status within the income distribution between 1970 and 1985. Samples of 25-35 year old men and women for 1970 and 1985 drawn from the March "Demographic File" editions of the Current Population Survey (cps) were analyzed. The following factors were examined: (1) differential fertility declines across educational groups; (2) the extent to which the status of children improves as birth rates regain equilibrium; and (3) the gap between the educational level of parents and the educational level of the workplace at large. The following findings are reported: (1) a decrease in the number of children in two-parent families was the most important factor contributing to the declining economic status of children, followed by an increase in the number of children in female-headed families and a decline in the economic status of less-educated working parents; (2) a projected 35 percent increase in the number of children in two-parent families due to postponed childbearing would have only a modest effect on the overall economic status of children; and (3) the gap between the educational level of parents and the educational level of the workplace widened modestly, probably due to the increased number of female family heads who are high school graduates. Seven tables of statistical data are appended. (Fmw)

Participation Rates in the Aid to Families with Dependent Children Program: Trends for 1967 Through 1984 by Patricia Ruggles( Book )
1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This report examines participation rates in the Aid to Families with Dependent Children (afdc) program. Trim2, a microsimulation model that simulated the eligibility and benefit rules of the afdc program on a state-by-state basis, showed that there had been a dramatic decline after 1981 in the rate at which afdc families were applying for and receiving benefits. This phenomenon was caused by the change in the coding of subfamilies (adults who live with children but are not their biological parents) by the Census Bureau on the Current Population Survey, which is the basic input file used to compute eligibility. There was no massive behavioral change on the part of afdc eligibles in the early 1980s: between 150,000 and 400,000 subfamilies (depending on the year) were omitted from the eligibility estimates between 1967 and 1980. Comparative analyses of the afdc program that encompass the period before and after the coding change might be impaired by the impact of the change. Participation rates are much lower than previously believed, and are perhaps not at a saturation level. Analysis of trends in the characteristics of afdc eligibles from 1979 to 1984 reveal the following changes after 1980: (1) more subfamily and family heads were likely to be black, female, young and never married; (2) more family and subfamily heads lived in higher income households and contributed to a lower percentage of household income; and (3) more subfamily heads had a child under 6 years of age. Implications for policy and research are discussed. Data are presented on 14 tables and figures. A bibliography is included. (Bjv)
