This study attempts to build and estimate a model that explains the behaviour of the supply of and demand for education at comprehensive universities in the United States. The statistical analysis uses data for the year 1990 - 91 for 360 comprehensive universities. The results suggest that a perfectly competitive market exists for this education. The quantity of students, cost of education, average SAT score, class size, level of highest degree offered, and tier of the institution explain variations in tuition at comprehensive universities.
