Does distance determine who is in higher education?

Research output: Working paperResearch


We assessed the effect of distance to higher education institutions on
education enrolment. Furthermore, we analysed how parental education and
geographic region affect the relationship between distance and enrolment. We
employed Danish administrative data of high school students from 2006–2013
and found no relationship between distance and the decision to enrol in higher
education, when controlling for individual and parental characteristics.
However, the results did suggest a small negative association between distance
and enrolment among students in cases where neither of their parents
completed a higher education. However, this only applied in Central Jutland
Region and Southern Denmark Region.
