Abstract

Con base en trabajos previos, que tratan la migración como una herramienta de desarrollo, se evaluó el efecto de la migración en las condiciones de vida al modelar el impacto de tener un miembro del hogar emigrante en el Índice de Condiciones de Vida. Como es usual en la literatura relacionada con migración, se trata a la naturaleza endógena de la migración con un enfoque de variables instrumentales. Se encuentra que los hogares con miembros que viven en el exterior tienden a tener índices más altos. Similarmente, la presencia de miembros emigrantes aumenta la probabilidad de pertenecer a la mitad de hogares con mejores condiciones de vida.
