Abstract: This paper provides empirical evidence on the trends of how demand-side factors predict the probabilities of enrollment in higher education in Cambodia between 2004 and 2014, using nationally representative household survey data with multinomial logistic regression approach. The findings suggest that higher education expansion in Cambodia is in favor of students from affluent families residing in the capital. However, students of disadvantaged backgrounds are likely to benefit more from the higher education expansion, given those students can finish high school.
