Appendix C: INDIVIDUAL

Appendix C: INDIVIDUAL STATE AND COMMUNITY COLLEGE CERTIFICATE REPORTS While relatively little national data have been produced that examines the value of certificates, many individual states and institutions have conducted or commissioned their own studies. The findings of these reports differ to some extent partially based on differences in methodology. For example, some reports calculated certificate holders’ earnings immediately after graduation, while others used their career midpoint. Most of the reports reinforce the findings presented in this report—a large wage premium to certificates—though some do not. One report based in Kentucky, for example, found no return at all for women and a minimal return for men. Indeed, returns to certificates vary greatly from state to state, and would expect them to vary across institutions as well. Some of these reports also examined the value of differences based on program length. A report conducted in Colorado found a significant difference in the returns between certificates of a year or less (only a 3 percent wage premium) and those greater than a year (a 30 percent wage premium). Other reports conducted in Florida and Illinois found significant returns for both short- and medium-term certificates.
