EFFECT of education on


Stratification research has so far almost exclusively focused on the achieved level of education and its impact on labour market careers. However, public opinion, government policies as well as research in the area of transition from school to work all suggest that the subject matters in addition to educational level. Furthermore, both the human capital and the screenings theory imply, albeit for different reasons, that the subject has an impact on labour market careers. With these reasons in mind, the authors designed three alternative measures of education, all including level as well as subject. To find out whether the new measures are indeed an alternative for the commonly used measure, they are included in a traditional status attainment model and put to the test using two different data-sets. The results do not support the hypothesis. There are no indications that subjects have an impact on labour market careers in a systematic timid interpretable way.
