Abstract: How pensions affect the schooling and labor of the household´s youngsters - The central question of this paper is to determine whether the component of the household income constituted by pensions affects the probability of the youngsters (15 to 21 years old) in the household being neither students nor labor suppliers. Combining the possibilities of attending or not attending school and participating or not in the labor market, there are 4 situations whose probabilities are analyzed using a multinomial logit model. Using data from the 2006 Brazilian National Household Sample Survey, it is shown that the income of pensioners contributes substantially to increase the probability of the household?s youngsters being in school and not participating in the labor market. There is no evidence that pension incomes in a household increase the probability of their youngsters being simultaneously outside school and outside the labor market.
