Household Expenditure on Higher Education in India: What do we know & What do recent data have to say?

Published By: Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research, M | Published Date: December, 01 , 2016

The paper analyse data from two recent NSSO surveys to provide estimates of expenditure on higher education and loans availed for higher education. The average share of expenditure on higher education out of total household expenditure is 15.3 per cent and 18.4 per cent for rural and urban households who participate in higher education. This average is higher in the southern states since individuals from these states are more likely to be enrolled in private unaided institutions where fees are higher and are more likely to be pursuing technical education.
