Mehay, Stephen L.
MetadataShow full item record
This research analyzes the post-military earnings experiences of veterans from the all-volunteer force era. The 1986 DOD Reserve Components Survey is used to control for sources of bias associated with sample selectivity. Log-earnings equations are estimated to examine the effect of veteran status, branch of service, and skill transfer from the military to the civilian sector. In addition, wage differences by race and veteran status are estimated. Finally, wage profiles are estimated for veterans based on the number of years they have spent in the civilian labor force.
