The determinants of university dropout in Italy: a bivariate probability model with sample selection

Author

  • Giorgio Di Pietro

Abstract

This study analyses the determinants of university dropouts in Italy using a bivariate probit model with sample selection. The empirical findings provide some support for the appropriateness of this technique and hence suggest that the estimates obtained from a univariate decision framework are likely to be inefficient.
