Regressions of Changes in Primary Enrollment Ratios on Changes in Life Expectancy and Other Variables
|Change in life expectancy at birth over previous five years (in years)||0.015||0.025||0.020|
|Change in real GDP per capita over previous five years (in 1987 dollars)||0.000||0.000||0.000|
|Country- and region-specific intercepts||8 regions||39 countries||None|
|Number of observations||613||181||181|
The dependent variable is the change in the gross primary enrollment ratio (see Table 4.3) over the preceding five years; data are from 122 countries (including 39 African countries, listed in the notes to Table 4.3) at five-year intervals beginning in 1970 (change from 1965) and ending in 1995. Some observations were omitted from the regressions for lack of data. See Table 4.3 for other details of the regression.
