Enrollments in Higher Education: Do Economic Incentives Matter?
Lauer, Charlotte
Education + Training, v44 n4-5 p179-85 2002
Higher education enrollment in Germany is mainly influenced by social origin. High unemployment risk and a high expected wage premium seem to increase enrollment probability; a higher propensity of unemployment or part-time employment decreases it. Extending the coverage of public financial support seems to be more efficient in increasing enrollments than raising the amount per beneficiary. (Contains 18 references.) (SK)
