Abstract

VICTORIA PAREDES, María Teresa  and  TOVAR CUEVAS, Luis Miguel. MIGRACIÓN INTERNACIONAL Y EDUCACIÓN: UNA APROXIMACIÓN AL EFECTO SOBRE LA ASISTENCIA ESCOLAR EN COLOMBIA. Cuad. Econ. [online]. 2009, vol.28, n.51, pp.175-204. ISSN 0121-4772.

This paper explores the linkage between international migration and school attendance for Colombia during 2005. Data from National Demographic and Health Survey, carried out by Profamilia, were used. The potential presence of endogeneity was ruled out by estimating Probit models using non-linear-two-stages methods. No evidence was found on migration increasing the probability of attending school.

Keywords : international migration; education; school attendance; economic development; remittances; international emigration.
