Title:Access to the most selective private colleges by high-ability, low-income students: Are they out there?
Short Description:Uses the national population of high school test-takers in 2003 to examine the national distribution over family incomes of high-ability students.
Annotation:This paper uses the national population of high school test-takers in 2003 to examine the national distribution over family incomes of high-ability students (variously defined). With these data, two questions can be addressed. What would be the target share of low-income students at these schools if their student bodies were to mirror the national high-ability population? And, are they out there – do there exist enough such low-income, high-ability students to meet those targets?
