Objectives
Objectives Accessibility in Comparative Perspective

  • Create comparable cross-national data on the affordability and accessibility of higher education

  • Discuss what is meant by “affordability” and “accessibility” of higher education

  • Preliminary exploration of links between them


Affordability weightings
Affordability Weightings Accessibility in Comparative Perspective

Indicator Weightings

  • Education Costs EC (10%)

  • Total Costs TC (10%)

  • Net Costs NC (25%)

  • NC After Tax Expenditures (15%)

  • Out of Pocket Costs OOPC (25%)

  • OOPC After Tax Expenditures (15%)

    Indicators reflect:

  • Student cost measures

  • Role of supports (grants, tax, loans)


Accessibility weightings
Accessibility Weightings Accessibility in Comparative Perspective

Indicator Weightings:

  • Participation Rate (25%)

  • Attainment Rate (25%)

  • Educational Equity Index (40%)

  • Gender Parity Index (10%)

    Indicators reflect system

  • Size: how many go (50%)

  • Composition: who goes (50%)


Major data sources consulted
Major Data Sources Consulted Accessibility in Comparative Perspective

International:

  • Eurostudent Project 2000

  • ICHEFAP, SUNY Buffalo

  • OECD database & Education at a Glance 2004

  • UNESCO Institute for Statistics

  • National statistics bureaus and ministries

  • Student Financial Support (Vossensteyn 2004)

  • Country specific reports (e.g. Japan’s Education at a Glance 2004, Price of Knowledge 2004)

    USA:

  • NCES Digest of Education

  • 2004 NASSGAP survey

  • College Board, Trends in Student Aid 2003


Education costs
Education Costs Accessibility in Comparative Perspective

  • Education Costs (EC): tuition and fees

  • USA EC is weighted by participation in public and private 4 year institutions


Total cost
Total Cost Accessibility in Comparative Perspective

  • Total costs (TC) : EC and Living Costs

  • The gap between countries narrows


Total cost affordability
Total Cost Affordability Accessibility in Comparative Perspective

  • Per student TC as a fraction of GDP/capita

  • Ability to pay influences access

    • Cost data inputs > ATP data scores for rankings


Grants
Grants Accessibility in Comparative Perspective

  • Average grant per student

    (as with all supports: G, TE, L)


Tax expenditures

Loans

Participation
Participation Accessibility in Comparative Perspective

  • Participation rate of largest 4-year cohort


Attainment
Attainment Accessibility in Comparative Perspective

  • Attainment rate of population aged 25-34


Educational equity index eei
Educational Equity Index (EEI) Accessibility in Comparative Perspective

  • EEI described in A New Measuring Stick

  • Quantifies over-representation of students’ educational background relative to the population

  • Calculation:

    EEI = 100* (% of males 45-65 w/ HE)

    (% of students w/ fathers w/ HE)
