  • Abstract

    Here the course of selected variables from the university system is analysed with time series analytical models. The data selection offers starting points to establish longer-term connections in the development of the university system than was previously possible. The primary concern of the investigation is clarification of some determinants of these long-term connections that have determined the course of fundamental variables of the university system in the long time interval from 1830 to today.
