Abstract:

The survey also provides detailed information on the household demographic structure, income and parents? education. The empirical analysis indicates that the quality of schools is one of the driving factors in the choice between private and public schools. The results are robust with respect to the particular quality indicator used and the presence of provincial fixed effects.
