Description

It is believed that the better one's education is, the more job opportunities will be available to them, which are associated with higher earnings. To test this theory, I am researching the returns associated with earning a bachelor?s degree. I will be gathering information from 50 counties from the San Fracisco Bay Area down, as wealthier families tend to live in suburban areas, not a direct metropolitan city. Other factors I will examine include high school graduate incomes, unemployment rate, the population in the county age 25-64, race, and some other usual suspects that affect income.
