This chart is for all of you who are reviewing your child's college acceptance letters and are starting to wonder if the cost for college is worth it!!

In the long term the short answer is - yes!

Is anyone else shocked by the discrepency between males & females? That's unfortunate.

Dr. Mark J. Stock said...

Yes, I was very surprised by the wide gap. I was under the impression that the gender gap was closing some.

However, one explanation could be that this chart is not a career to career match. In other words, the pool of all women could be more likely to have college degrees in a variety professions that do not pay higher wages for male or females which would skew the results.

I would certainly hope that in a career to career match - two similar doctors, nurses, or engineers - one female and one male - would be getting similar wages.
