Short-Term Redistributive Effects of Public Financing of University Education in Quebec
Redistributive effects of public financing of university education in Quebec in 1984 are analyzed. Families are grouped by education level of head of family; redistributive effects are assumed to take place within families which are likely to have a child in university during the period of the survey. Benefits are represented by the cost of three forms of public intervention: public subsidies to universities, student aid, and tax expenditure. The total value of public intervention is positively correlated with socio-economic status. The author is unable to reject the hypothesis of regressivity.
