Summary note:
This paper finds racial and gender differences in college students’ decision to work for pay during school even after accounting for socioeconomic and other factors. Black and female students are found to have a greater likelihood of working for pay during college, while Asian students are found to be less likely to work for pay. These analysis findings are based off of four years of data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Freshman (NLSF) indicating whether students worked for pay during each academic year.
