Abstract

This paper examines whether net social welfare expenditure did buttress participation rates in university education in the south of Italy between 1983 and 1996. This hypothesis is tested setting up an enrolment model in which net social welfare expenditure is included as one of the independent variables, using pooled regional data. Although unemployment rates among young individuals have been found to be the major determinant of enrolment rates, empirical results support the hypothesis according to which net social welfare expenditure did have a role in enhancing participation rates in university education in the south of Italy in the 1983-1996 period.
