Bachelor's Degree Productivity X-Inefficiency: The Role of State Higher Education Policy
Titus, Marvin A.
Journal of College Student Retention: Research, Theory & Practice, v11 n1 p7-32 2009-2010
Using stochastic frontier analysis and dynamic fixed-effects panel modeling, this study examines how changes in the x-inefficiency of bachelor's degree production are influenced by changes in state higher education policy. The findings from this research show that increases in need-based state financial aid help to mitigate the convergence among states in x-inefficiency with regard to bachelor's degree production. (Contains 7 tables, 1 footnote and 5 endnotes.)
