Assessing the Impact of Remittances on Schooling: the Mexican Experience
This paper analyzes the impact of remittances on child human capital in Mexico. During the 90s and in particular after the tequila crisis Mexican workers increased the remittances that were sent to their homes from the United States. I will analyze the effect of such increasing source of income on child human capital decisions. Contrary to Hanson and Woodruff (2003) the results obtained from Census data indicate a positive and small effect of remittances on schooling only for children living in cities with fewer than 2,500 inhabitants and with mothers with a very low level of education. However its magnitude is not substantial.
