Abstract:There is evidence of growing disparities in primary schooling rates between rural and urban areas in Tanzania. This paper presents empirical estimates for the determinants of primary school attendance in Tanzania for the early 1990s, and provides a comparison of attendance rates between the rural and urban areas for a number of different age groups. A statistically significant differential in primary school attendance rates between urban and rural areas is detected for the age groups examined. On the basis of the authors' estimates a large part of the differential is attributable to urban-rural differences in household income. App., bibliogr., notes, ref., sum.
