Abstract

Le present document modelise les revenus des hommes et des femmes titulaires d'un baccalaureat au Canada, cinq ans apres l'obtention de leur diplome. Au moyen d'une approche d'effet constant au niveau de l'universite, les chercheurs ont observe des variations importantes (constantes) au chapitre des revenus des finissants de differentes universites. La variation des caracteristiques des universites au fil du temps sont mises en correlation avec la variation des revenus des finissants. L'augmentation du taux d'inscription aux programmes universitaires de premier cycle est liee a une reduction des revenus subsequents des finissants, ce qui laisse supposer une saturation du marche. Chez les hommes, mais pas chez les femmes, les augmentations du rapport professeur-etudiant sont associees a une augmentation appreciable des revenus subsequents des etudiants. Les modeles qui ne tiennent pas compte de la majeure des etudiants affichent une incidence accrue de la variation des caracteristiques des universites, les effets atteignant pres du double de leur valeur initiale. Chez les femmes en particulier, la variation de plusieurs caracteristiques des universites est etroitement liee a la variation du choix de majeure. La variation des caracteristiques des universites n'est pas etroitement liee a la probabilite d'avoir un emploi cinq ans apres l'obtention du diplome.
