The second edition of a survey which measures how college inputs affect outputs later in life focuses on whether college costs change a person’s life.

The Gallup-Purdue Index asked 30,000 college graduates this year whether they thought what they paid for school was worth it.

WBAA’s Stan Jastrzebski sat down with Gallup’s education polling head Brandon Busteed to talk about how he designs the survey, and how Purdue officials -- some of whom want to push back against student loans -- affect what questions are asked.
