Education and the Evolution of Earnings Across Population Groups Since 2000

Kelley Sarussi and Thomas Walstrum

Profitwise, 2019, issue 5, 1-13

Abstract: By nearly all macroeconomic measures, the US economy is in good shape: unemployment is low, jobs growth is steady, inflation is stable, and GDP has expanded uninterrupted for 10 years?the longest expansion in US history. The good news from the aggregate data means that most people are in the best economic position they have been in for some time. But by definition, aggregate data cannot tell us whether an overall good economy is benefitting some population groups more than others. This article disaggregates the good news in the macrodata by tracking the fortunes of a variety of population groups since 2000.
