In the second chapter, I examine growth in educational attainment over the past thirty years by gender and demographic characteristics. I show that both the rise in educational attainment and the rise of the female advantage in educational attainment occurred relatively similarly across socioeconomic status (SES). I also demonstrate how a prior result showing an increased gradient of education by SES used incorrect sampling weights and is not robust to a more permanent measure of SES.
