The Effect of Sibling Size on College Funding and Attendance

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

I examine how the number of siblings in a student’s family influences: 1) whether a student decides to enroll in any college program, 2) the type of institution enrolled in (two or four-year school), and 3) the sources of funding used to finance college attendance. I find number of siblings has a negative effect on attending college as well as attending a four-year as opposed to two-year college. The effect of siblings on four-year attendance is explained by greater achievement of students with less siblings. However, the negative effect of siblings on overall attendance is not explained by financial or academic measures. For those who attend college sibling size is associated with a decreased likelihood of receiving financial assistance from family.
