In today’s world and economy some individuals believe that education and wages go together. If a certain individual has less education then the smaller their wages may be thus with more education may lead to an increase in the money earned. Some other factors that people believe may affect wages are race, gender, work experience, and the age of the individual. For the main focus of this discussion we will discuss what type of research is involved for the subject of wages and its relationship between education, gender, and other factors affecting wage earnings. We will be discussing the purpose of this research, define the problem, propose three possible solutions, and finally define the problem in quantifiable measurements. According to some research studies the level of education that an individual obtains directly correlates to the wages that he or she will earn over his or her lifetime. The higher the degree of education that a person attains can affect the amount of wages that he or she will earn. Besides education there are some other factors that can affect how much a person’s wages will be. Some prime examples are location of employment, and of course experience of the individual. Research shows that there is also a difference in wage earnings by males and females who have earned the same degrees. Research also suggests that there is an advantage of an increase in earning power by an individual who continues his or her education, and advances the degrees that he or she holds. This research may be important for anyone who is considering whether or not he or she should continue to further his or her education. It also is going to require the person to pay more money because of rising prices of tuition and books.

One person may be making twenty dollars per hour working as a teacher in one town starting out. At the same time his friend who went to the same college and earned the same degree earned a job as a teacher in

the town just thirty minutes away making sixteen dollars per hour. It can be difficult to distinguish how the wages we earned and whether or not there were any bonuses involved as well. The essential point of this type of research is that it does not imply any kind of order among responses. For example when classifying people according to years experience, there is no sense as to where they worked and whether or not they changed locations multiple times. Thus affecting the results of how long a person has experience in a particular occupation. This data sheet only explains the difference between three main categories of industries
