The Sibling Size Impact on the Educational Achievement in France
Adli, Rhonya; Louichi, Ahmed; Tamouh, Nadia
Education Economics, v18 n3 p331-348 Sep 2010
We examine the impact of sibling size on children's education. The theoretical framework shows an opposite relationship between the number of children within family and their school performance. Empirical works diverge between those corroborating this theory and those leading to ambiguous results such a positive correlation or the absence of any correlation. An econometric study based on national survey data, "Efforts of Education of families in France (1991-1992)", reveals that this relation is much more complex. On the one hand, this correlation can be positive, negative, or absent according to the various modalities taken into account. On the other hand, we will show the influence of other factors that exert a stronger effect on the educational achievement. (Contains 4 tables and 3 notes.)
