Conditional and Unconditional Transfers: Remittances and the take-up of CCT programs in developing countries
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This study examines the relationship between reception of remittances and CCT participation. Three hypotheses, predicting a negative relationship between remittances and CCTs, are presented. These are tested by logit regressions based on data from national household surveys from four Latin American countries. The study finds some support for a negative correlation between remittances and CCT participation, but lack of data restricts the possibility of drawing firm conclusions from the study.
