dc.description.abstractThis study utilizes the heterogeneity of the fee abolition for West German secondary schoolsto identify its effect on enrollment and to obtain an estimate of the price elasticity of demandfor education. The analysis is based on administrative school enrollment statistics as well ason representative individual-level data from three annual surveys of the GermanMikrozensus. Estimates suggest that enrollment in Advanced Schools increased by about sixpercent due to the fee abolition, where the results are sensitive to the specification choice.The positive enrollment effect of fee abolition for women exceeds that for men. A fifty percentreduction in fees is associated with an overall change in enrollment rates by 3 percent, wherethe elasticity of the demand for females' education again exceeds that for males'.en_US
