dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study is to determine if occupational licensing affects the state in which veterans choose to live after separating from the military. Veterans receive specialized training while in the military, which has the potential to translate easily into civilian occupations. States that mandate licensing requirements for occupations, however, may act as barriers that prevent veterans from easily entering occupations for which they have received military training, causing unnecessary market inefficiencies. Occupational licensing has historically resulted in increased wages for workers in those occupations, and this study empirically confirms this trend, utilizing data regressions of veterans in the census. Additionally, as this study examines a sample composed entirely of veterans, I am able to compare multivariate relationships of our veteran sample to those of previous civilian samples. As this field is fairly narrow, and relatively new, there are numerous opportunities to further develop these relationships in future studies. New data collection from outside entities would also enable more useful studies to be conducted in this area.
