A recent report by Strada Education Network and Gallup discusses employment, income, and other differences among those with a certificate or certification, but no degree, compared with those lacking a postsecondary credential.
In addition to higher wages and full-time employment, the report finds women, Hispanics, and Asians are less likely to hold non-degree credentials. The wage premiums for certificate-holders also varied by occupation. Jobs in areas such as protective services, architecture or engineering, and computers earn the most, while education, training, library, and administrative occupations earned the least.
The report also identified differences in earnings by gender. At the highest income distribution, the wage premium for men was $25,000, about $14,500 more than for women.
