Abstract

Seit längerer Zeit gibt es Studien, welche zeigen, dass die Wahrscheinlichkeit, ein Hochschulstudium zu ergreifen, von der Distanz zur nächstgelegenen Hoch¬schule beeinflusst wird. In dieser Studie wird neu gezeigt, dass die Distanz zur nächst¬gelegenen Hochschule auch einen Einfluss auf die Fächer- und Institutionenwahl hat. Diese Befunde sind auch deshalb interessant, weil der Distanzeffekt bei diesen Fragestellungen einem deutlich kleineren Endogenitätsrisiko unterliegt als bei der Analyse der Studierneigung. Zudem zeigen die Ergebnisse, dass bei Studierenden aus der obersten sozioökonomischen Schicht das Studier verhalten nicht durch die Distanz beeinflusst wird, was als weiteres Indiz dafür gewertet werden kann, dass die Distanz zu einer Hochschule tatsächlich ein Aus¬druck unterschiedlicher Kosten eines Studiums ist.
