Did College Choice Change during the Seventies?
Jackson, Gregory A.
Economics of Education Review, v7 n1 p15-27 1988
Despite steady enrollment growth and external shocks to U.S. higher education system, high school graduates' college-going decisions in 1980, as much as in 1972, depended on their social, academic, and financial attributes. Analyses of two national longitudinal surveys underlie this finding, implying traditional students' college decisions are resistant to social changes. Includes four tables, 14 endnotes, and 21 references. (MLH)
