Under-represented Groups in Postsecondary Education in Ontario: Evidence from the Youth in Transition Survey

This project used data from the Youth in Transition Survey and built on previous research to analyze access to post-secondary education among a number of under-represented groups in Ontario and in other regions of Canada. This project differed from previous work in the full range of groups it considered (low family income, lower parental education, family type, disability status, etc.). As a result, the project gives a more precise indication of which factors matter most to PSE access among under-represented groups – and which factors appear to matter simply because they are correlated with the other factors that really matter.
