Although participation in post-school adult education and training has increased for all workers, data from the 1991 National Household Education Survey confirm that workers with more formal education are more likely to participate in employment-related training. The level of formal education attained by U.S. workers increased substantially during the 1970s and 1980s. Over the same period, real (inflation-adjusted) earnings declined for many workers, prompting some analysts to focus on the methods by which workers augment their skills once they have completed full-time schooling. Inquiry into the issue, however, has been hampered by a relative lack of data. Finally, the results of this study are compared with those of earlier studies that used the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth (NLSY) and the Current Population Survey (CPS).
