University Drop-out in Italy
AbstractThis paper investigates the determinants of Italian university drop-out which is one of the main issues of the tertiary education system. We provide evidence at national level as we use longitudinal data drawn from the European Community Household Panel (ECHP) for Italy. We perform a survival analysis model and results indicate that family income does not appear to be associated with withdrawal, while it does matter parental education and family composition. In addition, after taking the probability of dropping out from university, we have defined the predicted hazard rate and survival time for some specific groups according to the set of covariates selected each time.
