Estimation and analysis of expenditure and income of the floating population of undergraduate university student in the city of Tunja, Colombia

Main Article Content


María Isabel Rojas Triana


This article shows the estimated demand model of expenditure and income of floating students in the city of Tunja. It is based on an application to the Engel curve, using the method of Working and Leser, taking data from a poll made on a sample of floating university students in the city of Tunja, whom were asked about some socio-economic variables, such as spending and income. The most important demand of floating students is given by spending on housing, which is seen from the value of the coefficients of the equation system proposed in the model.
