Determinants of Household's Education and Healthcare Spending in Nigeria: Evidence from Survey Data
Kolawole Ogundari () and
African Development Review, 2014, vol. 26, issue 1, 1-14
This study employs household-level data from Nigeria to examine expenditure patterns for educational and healthcare services for rural and urban households in the country. It uses a double-hurdle model that allows the analysis of both the decision to spend and how much to spend on educational and healthcare services. The empirical results show that a household's decision on whether to spend and how much to spend on educational and healthcare services are positively and significantly related to household income, household size and the level of education of the household head. The findings also reveal that female-headed households tend to spend more on education of household members and healthcare services, compared to male-headed households.
