I would like to acknowledge FIREOPP’s Preston Cooper for producing this article and I would like to cite his article’s table as I have used it extensively for the income projection of college degrees. Furthermore, I would implore any user of this website to read his article, it is extraordinarily insightful and although I relied on ensemble methods to produce the counter-factual income when someone did not go to college, his article did inspire me to take up this project.

Secondly, I would like to cite the American Community Survey by the Census Bureau for information needed to create the dataset of 3.3 million Americans who have only high school degrees.

Lastly, I would like to cite the for the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1997 by the US Bureau of Labor which I used to calculate an adjustment factor per user to control for a multitude of variables that heavily impact lifetime income.
