The Long-term Labour Market Premiums Associated with a Terminal High School Diploma (2014)

Research Paper

This paper examines the long-term labour market premiums associated with completing a high school diploma. The focus is on terminal high school diplomas - those not followed up with post-secondary education (PSE). In this sense, the study did not look at the value of secondary school as an entry point to PSE, which may be substantial since previous studies have associated PSE with superior labour market outcomes.
