Description
  • Abstract

    Although prior research has suggested that some students may be averse to taking out loans to finance their college education,there is little empirical evidence showing the extent to which loan aversion exists or how it affects different populations of students. This study provides the first large-scale quantitative evidence of levels of loan aversion in the United States. Using survey data collected on more than 6,000 individuals, we examine the frequency of loan aversion in three distinct populations: high school seniors, community college students, and adults without a college degree.
