States' Potential Enrollment of Adult Students: A Stochastic Frontier Analysis
Titus, Marvin A.; Pusser, Brian
Research in Higher Education, v52 n6 p555-571 Sep 2011
This study shows that financial aspects of state higher education policies, particularly tuition, have an impact on the level of enrollment of adult undergraduates within a state. This study also demonstrates how stochastic frontier analysis (SFA) can be utilized to examine the "potential" maximum enrollment of adult learners in postsecondary education and generate state-level scores that can be utilized to rank states according to the difference between the "potential" maximum and actual enrollment of adults in higher education.
