Enrolment and Delayed Enrolment of Secondary School Age Children in Indonesia
The authors analyze the school participation decision of children between thirteen and eighteen years in Indonesia using the 1992 SUSENAS household survey. Their focus is on which household factors determine enrolment and delayed enrolment. The authors use the multinomial fixed effect model where the cluster-specific fixed effects correct for any regional-specific factors that may influence the demand for education. The model is estimated by conditional maximum likelihood. They find that parent's education has a positive effect on enrolment, where the effects are stronger for boys than for girls. On the other hand, literacy of parents has stronger effects on the girls' education than on the boys'. The model without fixed effects is rejected against the model with fixed effects. Hence, omitting regional variation in the model would have led to biased estimates. Copyright 1998 by Blackwell Publishing Ltd
