The Demand for Higher Education in Belgium.
Duchesne, I.; Nonneman, W.
Economics of Education Review, v17 n2 p211-18 Apr 1998
Investigates determinants behind the spectacular higher education enrollment growth in Belgium since 1953, using a demand model that integrates consumption and investment aspects and empirically tests time-series data specifications between 1953 and 1992. Income and foregone earnings are driving enrollments. Income, opportunity costs, and the wage differential matter more for participating at non-university institutes than for enrolling in universities. (20 references) (MLH)
