Rôle de la discrimination ethnique et rurale dans la relation entre inégalité de revenu et santé au Guatemala
AbstractThis paper seeks to understand in which ways income inequality can act on children’ health in Guatemala. We postulate that there are several transmission channels of income inequality on health and that the ethnic and/or rural origin of the children can have an influence on the size and the direction of this effect. Methodology used is systems of simultaneous equations (three-stage least squares and GMM). Our results highlight the importance of rural and indigenous characteristics in the relationship between income inequality and child health, and indicate that the most important transmission channels are the income level of households and the education of mothers.
