This analysis considers two factors that might have contributed to the earnings gap between men and women. Women were more likely than men to interrupt their careers for an extended period of time to take care of young children, and women were also more likely than men to prepare for jobs that historically have lower income potential. This report examines earnings of men and women who worked consistently by their education level and the gender dominance of major field of study. Glossary. 24 charts and tables.

Page 66 - DAS will also produce a correlation matrix of selected variables to be used for linear regression models. Included in the output with the correlation matrix are the design effects (DEFTs) for each variable in the matrix. Since statistical procedures generally compute regression coefficients based on simple random sample assumptions, the standard errors must be adjusted with the design effects to take into account the EPS and B&B stratified sampling method. (See discussion under "Statistical Procedures"...
Page 59 - The estimates in this report are derived from samples and are subject to two broad classes of error—sampling and nonsampling error. Sampling errors occur because the data are collected from a sample of a population rather than from the entire population.

Nonsampling errors come from a variety of sources and affect universe...
