The Socioeconomic Status of Young Male Veterans, 1964-1984

Publication Abstract

Xie, Yu. "The Socioeconomic Status of Young Male Veterans, 1964-1984." PSC Research Report No. 90-196. 11 1990.

From a cohort-aging perspective, this paper assesses the socioeconomic status of young male veterans in comparison to that of young male nonveterans. It is found that veterans gradually come to have higher educational attainment and earn more than nonveterans. The advantages of being a veteran come late and only after the veteran's exit from the military. For socially disadvantaged groups, veteran status has an additional premium either because military experience provides a "bridging environment" or because employers use veteran status as a "screening" device.
