Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the effect of remittances andmigration on school attainment for children in Mexico. The theoretical effect ispositive for remittances and negative for living in a migrant household. A LinearProbability Model is used with an interaction term for remittances and migration,allowing the variables to be observed and estimated separately. I find thatremittances are associated with a lower probability of attending school. Howeverthe estimate likely reflect both remittances and long term migration, whichcomplicates the interpretation and prevents me from drawing conclusions of howremittances relate to school attendance. I also find that living in a migranthousehold that also receives remittances is negatively associated with schoolattendance. I find no evidence for lower household wealth being associated with alarger correlation between remittances and school attendance. Migration isassociated with a lower probability of attending school. I find a positive correlationbetween age and the migration effect, indicating that school attendance amongolder children is more negatively affected by migration in the household.
