(Goldin and
Katz 1999) Table 2 presents results of a regression where the outcome variable
is the log of state and local spending on higher education per capita.

3.i) (6 points)
One of the explanatory variables is the fraction of the population that is
Catholic. What is this explanatory variable meant to capture? How
could the fraction of the population that is Catholic help us understand state
and local spending on higher education?

ii)(6 points)
Goldin and Katz (1999) describe changes in both “scale” and “scope” of
institutions of higher education around the turn of the 20th century.
Briefly explain what is meant by these two terms in this context.
What factors do the authors argue contributed to the changes in the scope
of institutions of higher learning?
