Household Welfare, International Migration And Children Time Allocation In Rural Morocco
This paper examines the impact of remittances on child labor and education in recipient Moroccan households. Based on propensity-score matching methods, we find a positive effect of remittances on the investment in education. Furthermore, living in migrant households who combine school with work is clearly lower compared to the number of children from households of the control group. Our results show the positive effect of remittances on the schooling of the poor children. It also seems that the partial participation of poor children in work declines significantly through migrant remittances.
