SPECIAL SESSION SUMMARY

AN INTERCOUNTRY STUDY OF STUDENTS’ SPENDING PATTERNS AND FINANCING

Diane Masuo, University of Hawai'i at Manoa, U.S.A.

The purpose of this study is to compare spending patterns and financing among Hawai'i, Okinawa and Akita university students, and to determine what factors influence their consumption decisions and financing arrangements. College students enrolled in Human Resources and Home Economics courses were surveyed at three sites. Important information generated from this cross-cultural study include: (i) sources of financing for university education, (ii) sources of employment income, (iii) preferences for saving and spending, (iv) role of family in financial decisions confronting students, and (v) effects of selected demographic factors on items (i)B(iv).
