Abstract
This article attempts to explain why, between 1961 and 1972, as the proportion of
men aged 25-34 who completed high school increased, the pecuniary effects of
high school graduation rose. The authors are unable to explain the increase in
terms of widening human capital differences between dropouts and graduates,
queuing processes, or shifts in occupational composition and are led to conclude
that as high school graduation becomes increasingly common, the social definition
of the high school dropout as unqualified for the labor market intensifies, and the
economic disadvantages suffered by dropouts increase beyond those predicted by
simple models of the education-income relationship.
