Abstract [en]

This aims to study how spending per student in primaryschool differs between all the 290 Swedish municipalities. Furthermore, it examines what factors effect how much is spent per student and what implications this has from an equality standpoint.

The report used a cross-sectional data from 2016 and analysed the results using the OLS method. A number of variables were chosen based on earlier research. The results show that main variables that affect spending are tax, population, number of students per teacher, percentage children in the municipality and population density. The changes in spending results in that some students are allocated more resources than others and this could have consequences from an equality standpoint. However, overall the spending per student seems to be based more on factors that the municipality can’t control and less on individuals preferences.
