High school drop out rates are a matter of considerable concern. The results from research presented in this paper indicate that the concern is well founded, because the most consistent variable associated with self-sufficiency is completion of high school. A national longitudinal sample of young adults was used to investigate human capital investments, family background and personal characteristic associated with income and receipt of public assistance at age 27.
