Migración y expectativas intergeneracionales
AbstractIn this paper we study how the migration movements powers the inequalities in the human capital acquisition among more and less developed regions. To that end, we consider that migration is a familiar decision derived from maximising the familiar utility function. The main hypothesis infers that welfare depends, on one hand, on monetary variables such as the salary of the household head or being part of social programs (milk glass or breakfast), and on the other hand, on variables related to those services that improve the health status and educational level of the children. This study is realized for Peru using the Living Standard Measurement Survey (LSMS), 2000.
