Social snedrekrytering till högre studier - En litteraturöversikt
Abstract: This paper provides an overview of selected literature on
the impact of social background on educational opportunity in Sweden. Both
a sociological and an economic perspective are applied. It is found that
the social stratification in Sweden has decreased compared to other
comparable countries and that this probably is due to increased equality
outside of the educational sector and increased economic safety. However
the pattern of social stratification in higher education, though weaker,
persists with few changes. It is also found that the return to education
increases with social class and the economic incentives to study at
university level are, on the whole, lower for lower classes.
