Shahrukh Rafi Khan, SDPI 1995 Abstract The enrollment structure of Pakistan's leading public sector university shows that upper income groups are disproportionately represented relative to their size in the population and relative to their total tax contribution whereas the reverse is true for the poorer income groups. Given that university education is highly subsidized, the upper income groups therefore get a disproportionate amount of educational subsidies.
