I wish to thank my sponsor, Professor Jacob Mincer, for introducing me to the study of the economics of labor and human resources and for making useful suggestions throughout my preparation of this dissertation. The Ford Foundation (through a grant to the National Bureau of Economic Research for the study of the economics of population), the National Science Foundation, and the Manpower Administration ofthe United States Department of Labor provided financial support during my graduate program; while I was working on my dissertation, the National Bureau made available to me its research facilities,which were especially helpful.
