Price Elasticity of Demand for State Research Universities (in early stages of research)
There has been considerable study of the price sensitive of student demand for community college and four year institutions without selective admissions. Individual private institutions have detailed (but specific and proprietary) knowledge of their own prospective students price sensitivity which is much less than that of students at the margin of higher education. Almost nothing is known of the price sensitivity of students at state supported research universities since the sticker price is very much lower than either the cost, or the market price for the service. This study will seek to define some parameters of what students might be willing to pay for the type of education provided by state research intuitions (which have virtually no private analog in terms of selectivity, class size, and level of student service provided).
