Title: Does a college degree influence the occupational attainments of deaf adults? an examination of the initial and long term impact of college
Author: Welsh, William; Foster, Susan
Abstract: The purpose of this paper was to examine the effect of a college degree on occupational attainments of deaf adults. The paper is related to, and contains certain elements of, several studies already completed by the authors, as well as an examination of data collected by not fully analyzed. Quantitative data are present, including results of survey research and of accessing data banks of the Internal Revenue Service. These data describe the influence of college on labor force status, type of job, and earnings. Qualitative data are also included that pertain to job satisfaction. Results indicate that a college degree usually meant lower unemployment, better jobs, and higher earnings. However, data also showed that many college graduates were dissatisfied with elements of their work experience, especially those involving communication and social interaction with coworkers.
