Based on available data, college tuition and fees have been rising more rapidly than household income over the past 2 decades. The divergence is particularly pronounced for low-income household and become less pronounced as household income increases. Some research has identified specific factors related to increases in college price. For example, price increases at public 4-year institutions are strongly related to decreases in state appropriations. Given the current budget crisis that is affecting states nationwide, double-digit increases in tuition and fees are slated in some states for the 2003-2004 academic year.
