Abstract

Dans la presente etude, je m'appuie sur de nouvelles donnees canadiennes detaillees sur les aptitudes aux etudes, l'influence des parents, les contraintes financieres et d'autres caracteristiques socioeconomiques de base des jeunes pour tacher d'expliquer l'ecart important dans la frequentation de l'universite d'un niveau de la repartition du revenu a l'autre. Je conclus que 96 % de l'ecart total dans la frequentation de l'universite entre les jeunes se situant au quartile superieur de revenu et ceux appartenant au quartile inferieur s'explique par des differences dans les caracteristiques observables. Les differences dans les facteurs a long terme comme les notes aux tests normalises de lecture et les notes scolaires obtenues a 15 ans, l'influence des parents et la qualite de l'ecole secondaire expliquent 84 % de l'ecart. En revanche, seulement 12 % de l'ecart est relie aux contraintes financieres. Les resultats sont comparables pour les differents quartiles de revenu et lorsque j'utilise des notes aux tests normalises de mathematiques et de sciences. Toutefois, une plus grande partie de l'ecart est attribuable aux notes en lecture qu'aux notes a d'autres tests.
