Comparative Study of Educational Expenditure and Its Trends in O. E. C. D. Countries Since 1950. Background Study No. 2. Conference on Policies for Educational Growth. (Paris, France, June 3-5, 1970.)
Debeauvais, Michel, Comp.; And Others
For this study, a series of data has been collected covering the total amount of expenditure and its main constituent items. Data are also included for Yugoslavia, an associated member country. In the first chapter, the trend of educational expenditure in each country is measured and, controlling for the effect of price increases, the following expenditure growth factors are identified: the economy growth, the population and enrollment rate increase, the rise in teachers' pay and unit costs, and the change in teacher/student ratio. A "cross-section" analysis of the relationships between the level of educational expenditure and the level of economic development for the whole group of countries in a given year and for particular countries at different points in time is presented. A final chapter incorporates a series of extrapolations of educational expenditures up to 1980 for each O. E. C. D. country in which three different methods have been used and for which the results have been compared. Related documents are: ED 057 470, EA 004 323, EA 004 420, and EA 004 422-425. (Author/JH)
