Abstract

El objetivo de la comunicación es comprobar la importancia de las becas y ayudas al estudio como un elemento determinante de la continuidad escolar de los alumnos del nivel secundario post-obligatorio en España. El diseño metodológico aplicado se basa en un análisis cuasi experimental aplicando el Propensity Score Matching (PSM), a partir de la Encuesta de Condiciones de Vida de EUROSTAT (ECV), publicada en 2009, que brinda valiosa información acerca del individuo y su situación personal y familiar para el período 2004-2006. La aproximación empírica tiene dos partes claramente definidas. En primer lugar, la aplicación del PSM que permite confirmar la relevancia de las becas y ayudas al estudio como un elemento favorecedor de la continuidad escolar, para el nivel educativo analizado. En segundo lugar, la realización de un estudio para confirmar la robustez de las estimaciones, mediante la comprobación de la calidad de los emparejamientos realizados y la validez de los supuestos establecidos. Para intentar asegurar el cumplimiento de ambos requisitos se analiza la propia calidad de los emparejamientos, la correcta estimación de la varianza y la sensibilidad de los resultados obtenidos.
