Snedrekryteringen till högskolor och universitet - avgör den socioekonomiska bakgrunden valet av högre utbildning?
2004 (Swedish)Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

The main aim of this study is to ascertain whether class-distinctions, gender, or parents’ level of education seem to affect young peoples’ choice of higher education in a small community in the north of Sweden. A comparison with the national conditions is made as well. The group of people studied were the entire group of graduates from secondary school in 1996. The method used to perform this study was by the use of questionnaires completed by telephone interviews. The result of the study revealed obvious connections between the socio-economic background, gender, and parents’ level of education. The higher the class, the higher the probability of choosing a theoretical education and going to the university. Parents educated at the university are likewise likely to have children who choose a similar education, compared to those children whose parents have a shorter education; they mostly chose to learn a trade and not to go to the university at all. The gender seemed to have quite an effect on these choices as a great deal of the girls chose a higher education than the boys of similar background. These results are consistent with former studies on a national basis.
