Abstract

Using regression analysis and econometric techniques, I examined possible factors related to university enrollment rates of people between the ages of 18 and 25 across each state. The independent variables I chose are: median household income, teen pregnancy rates and state and local government spending on higher education per capita. After testing for outliers, I used Ordinary Least Squares regression to examine the statistical and economic significance of each variable. Then, I evaluated the assumptions made in the OLS regression model and the possible impacts they may have on the results.
