The Demand for Higher Education and a Test of the Extreme Screening Hypothesis
AbstractThis study proposes a model to estimate the demand for higher education. The present model is characterized by an ability-based distribution of high school graduates who choose between entering the labor market and beginning post-secondary schooling. In addition to estimating the demand for higher education, this model also derives a test of the extreme screening hypothesis. Moreover, it provides estimates of human capital accumulation functions for both males and females.
