The Value of Cost Functions for Policymaking and Institutional Research.
Toutkoushian, Robert K.
Research in Higher Education, v40 n1 p1-15 Feb 1999
A study used 1994-95 Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System data to estimate cost functions for postsecondary education institutions, focusing on how factors such as enrollment levels, location, research intensity, and faculty characteristics influence institutional costs. Many of these relationships have direct implications for reducing expenditure per student. Cost functions are also used to estimate marginal costs of undergraduate instruction. (Author/MSE)
