Abstract [sv]

Den här uppsatsen undersöker om studieprestationen hos studenter med olika socioekonomisk bakgrund påverkas olika av förändringar i nivån på studiemedlet. Vi gör detta genom att använda oss av en serie reformer av det svenska studiemedelssystemet som ändrade incitamenten för studenter att spendera sin tid på arbete eller studier. Aggregerad socioekonomisk bakgrund på lärosätesnivå används för att uppskatta skillnaderna mellan de socioekonomiska grupperna, där lärosäten med en högre andel studenter med stark socioekonomisk bakgrund antas vara mindre beroende av arbetsinkomster och därmed mindre känsliga för förändringar i studiemedlet. Utvecklingen i prestationsgrad för de socioekonomiska grupperna jämförs före och efter reformerna med hjälp av en difference-in-difference regression. Sammantaget ger resultaten stöd för att de socioekonomiska grupperna inte skiljer sig åt i hur deras prestationer i högskolan påverkades av reformerna.

Abstract [en]

This thesis explores if the academic achievements of students with different socioeconomic backgrounds are affected differently when the level of student aid is changed. We do this by using a series of reforms in the Swedish student aid system that changed incentives for students to spend time working or studying. Aggregate socioeconomic background for universities was used to estimate the differences between socioeconomic groups, where universities with a higher share of students with a strong socioeconomic background are assumed to be less dependent on work-related sources of income and thus less sensitive to changes in the level of student aid. The development of achievement rates in the socioeconomic groups were compared before and after the reforms took place by using a difference-in-differences regression. Overall, the results indicate that the socioeconomic groups do not differ in terms of how their achievements in higher education were affected by the reforms
