Summary

This report provides longitudinal data on employment among full-time college students from 1970 through 1995. It notes that the percentage of full-time college students, aged 16 to 24, who were employed rose from 34 percent in 1970 to 47 percent in 1988, and has remained fairly stable since then. The report also states that between 1970 and 1995, white and Hispanic full-time college students, aged 16 to 24, were more likely to be employed than their black peers. Almost half (47 percent) of all full-time college students aged 16 to 24 were employed in October 1995, and more than one-fourth (27 percent) worked at least 20 hours per week. In addition, 83 percent of part-time college students in the same age group were employed, with 73 percent working at least 20 hours per week. (MDM)
