This working paper examines changes in attendance differentials by wealth over time from 1990-2006 for 61 developing and transitional countries, based on household surveys and finds that school attendance differentials by wealth have declined over time in almost all countries. Declines in wealth differentials are almost universally associated with an overall increase in school attendance.
