Household Schooling and Child Labor Decisions in Rural Bangladesh
Shafiq, M. Najeeb
Online Submission
Using empirical methods, this paper examines household schooling and child labor decisions in rural Bangladesh. The results suggest the following: poverty and low parental education are associated with lower schooling and greater child labor; asset-owning households are more likely to have children combine child labor with schooling; households choose the same activity for all children within the household, regardless of gender; there is a weak association between direct costs and household decisions; finally, higher child wages encourage households to practice child labor. (Contains 5 tables, 2 figures, and 10 footnotes.)
