College for All? The Labor Market for College Educated Workers

This guide addresses the question: "Is the demand for 'college jobs' growing?" The author approaches the question by breaking relevant issues and the research into four areas: 1) evidence on the trajectory of the demand for skill; 2) sources of rising skill needs; 3) are the benefits real; and 4) moving forward. The author concludes that increasing access to higher education is beneficial in "social, civic, and economic terms."
