Women's Status and Child Labour in Nepal
No RP2007-85, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)
This paper uses data from the Nepal Living Standards Survey 2 (2003/2004) to find evidence to whether children are less likely to work and more likely to attend school in a household where the mother has a say in the intra-family decision-making, than in one where the father holds all the power. This is done by using a bivariate probit model with two dependent variables: child labour and school attendance.
