A Question of Degree: The Effects of Degree Class on Labour Market Outcomes

This paper estimates the sorting (signalling or screening) effects of university degree class on labour market outcomes. It compares labour market outcomes by degree class, six months after completing a course. The data is based on DLHE from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).

The research finds significant effects of degree class on initial labour market outcomes. The authors also explore differences across groups and find evidence consistent with a simple model of statistical discrimination on the basis of gender and types of degree programmes.
