Abstract

Cette etude vise a evaluer l'incidence de l'eloignement par rapport a l'etablissement d'enseignement sur la probabilite de s'inscrire a l'universite peu de temps apres l'obtention du diplome d'etudes secondaires. Les eleves du secondaire qui grandissent a proximite d'une universite peuvent realiser des economies en s'inscrivant a l'universite locale et en restant au domicile parental, et seraient donc plus susceptibles que les autres de poursuivre des etudes universitaires. A l'aide des donnees de l'Enquete sur la dynamique du travail et du revenu, d'une base de donnees sur les codes postaux des universites canadiennes et d'un fichier de conversion de codes postaux qui assure l'appariement des coordonnees geographiques aux codes postaux, il a ete possible d'estimer la distance en ligne droite entre le domicile des eleves du secondaire - avant l'obtention du diplome - et l'universite la plus proche. Si on neutralise l'effet du revenu familial, du niveau de scolarite des parents et d'autres facteurs lies a la poursuite d'etudes universitaires, l'analyse montre que les eleves qui vivent a une sont nettement moins susceptibles de s'inscrire a l'universite que ceux qui vivent a une . L'eloignement joue egalement un role dans le lien entre l'inscription a l'universite et ses autres correlats, dont le revenu familial et le sexe.
