Borooah uses data from the 71st (January–June 2014) and 64th (July 2007–June 2008) National Sample Survey rounds to estimate, firstly, the probabilities of persons in India, between the ages of 18 and 29 years currently attending higher education and secondly, the probabilities of those between 16 and 22 years attending higher secondary education. Using these probabilities, he asks whether in terms of access to higher, and to higher secondary, education, there is a “social group” effect to such attendance which stems from a general notion of “social backwardness”. Using technique of inequality decomposition he estimates the proportionate contributions of social group, gender, poverty, and location to inter-personal differences in the likelihood of attending higher, and higher secondary, education.
