Marital trajectories and women's wellbeing in Senegal

No wp-2017-124, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

Abstract: Divorce and widowhood followed by remarriage are common for women in Africa. A key question is how such discontinuous marital trajectories affect women's wellbeing. Women's marital trajectories in Senegal are described and correlated with measures of voice, resource constraints, and wellbeing as measured by consumption. Considerable selection into divorce and widowhood as well as subsequent remarriage is documented.
