Trabalho Infantil-Aplicação do Modelo Multinomial


  • Manuela Magalhaes


As crianças fazem parte da vida económica das sociedades. A evidência histórica mostra que o contributo das crianças para o rendimento das famílias é consistentemente significativo. O trabalho infantil é, ainda nos dias de hoje, um fenómeno expressivo, quer nas sociedades menos desenvolvidas, quer nas mais desenvolvidas. Este estudo analisa os factores determinantes na decisão das famílias, relativamente á afectação do tempo das crianças entre a escola; a escola e o trabalho, o trabalho ou o lazer. O modelo logit multinomial é o modelo utilizado para identificar as características pessoais, familiares, locais e sazonais que influenciam a decisão das famílias Ukranianas. Os resultados mostram que todos estes factores são considerados pelas famílias nas suas decisões. Assim, políticas que promovam o desenvolvimento económico, a redução do agregado familiar e alternativas à escola no terceiro trimestre, podem contribuir significativamente para a redução do trabalho infantil na Ukrania
