Demand or Supply for Schooling in Rural India?

Published By: IGIDR on eSS | Published Date: May, 01 , 2011

Is the poor human capital investment by rural Indian families primarily a supply side or a demand side issue? School attendance and total human capital investment time (time in school plus travel time plus in-home instructional time) are examined using the Indian Time Use Survey of 1998-1999 and the 7th All India School Education Survey (AISES). Probit and sample selection bias regression estimates indicate that the influence of supply side factors (school quality and availability) is large relative to the impact of household characteristics (example low income). policy implications are discussed.
