Joint HSE-NES Undergraduate Program in Economics
This paper studies the impact of socio-economic and demographic characteristics on the probability of combining studying and work by undergraduate students of Russian universities. The research shows that the share of employed students in Russia has significantly increased over the past 5 years. By using the model of binary choice, the author concludes that the most significant predictors of combining study and work are financial factors, the economic situation in a region and individual characteristics of students reflecting their preferences regarding a future job. In addition, the characteristics of students that impact the intensity of student employment are identified.
