// DISSERTATION PROJECT


The higher secondary private school market in Germany                 

My doctoral thesis focusses on the German higher secondary private school market, especially its characterisation, development, and interrelations with social inequalities. Therefore, I created a unique dataset including information on each private school where students can obtain the Abitur. This dataset is matched to administrative data at the administrative districts’ level. The analysis will be based on MCA.
