    The topic of this monograph are socio-economic factors of absolute demand for higher education. Using regression analysis, different social and economic factors of the increasing rate and of the decreasing base of demand on the aggregate level are determined. Using probit analysis, additional factors of the rate of demand on the individual level, such as informatisation and education level of a household are determined. Demand factors are interrelated and in some cases they have a different impact on the base and different impact on the rate of demand. The increase of the rate of demand until a certain value is correlated with the increase of the absolute demand, however further increase of the rate of demand from that value on is correlated with the decrease of absolute demand which is already the case in Slovenia and which will continue to be also in the future.
