Econometric Issues in Education Finance

The Review of Regional Studies, 2006, vol. 36, issue 2, 192-204

Abstract: Several econometric issues within the field of education finance that have not been fully explored to date are addressed. Focusing on demographic factors and per-pupil expenditures in the United States, an econometric model that incorporates spatial analysis is developed and a unique framework for analyzing the impact of demographics on local public demand is introduced. The results show that ethnic diversity has a negative impact on per-pupil spending, while the elderly have a positive impact.
