520    This study examines 1,037 independent school districts in 
       Texas in order to analyze the relative importance of 
       factors influencing privatization of non-instructional 
       services. After a review of the literature, district 
       economic health, urbanization, and political and 
       administrative stability emerged as the three main areas 
       affecting privatization expenditure levels. Hypotheses 
       were developed with the independent variables for each of 
       these areas of influence. Each of the hypotheses were then
       tested with multiple regression analysis for the major 
       categories of privatized non-instructional services: 
       professional services, tuition and transfer payments, 
       Education Service Center services, maintenance and repairs,
       utilities, rental and operating leases, and miscellaneous 
       services. District economic health was shown to have the 
       greatest influence on the seven categories of 
       privatization expenditures, and urbanization factors 
       exerted minimal influence. Political and administrative 
       stability did not effect privatization expenditures
