Based on the results from the present study, it is recommended that educators and policy leaders encourage all students to complete their high school studies. In addition, policy-makers should strengthen efforts aimed at reducing the high school dropout rate to ensure that all young adults attain the credential associated with higher earnings potential, and experience reduced risks for criminal behavior and other problematic or maladaptive outcomes. Moreover, given the absence of statistically significant economic returns at the 95% confidence level to sub-baccalaureate credentials in this subsample, two-year college leaders should re-evaluate the curricula of postsecondary programs to align the content courses closely with the skills and knowledge required in local or regional labor markets.The Base Year to Fourth Follow-up Data File Usera#39;s Manual (Curtin, 2002) provides a description of the sample weights ... errors using software programs such as SAS and SUDAAN due to the data collected with complex survey techniques.
