The Influence Of Endogenous Mother’s Bargaining Power On Her Child’s Schooling: Evidence From Pakistan
This paper is an attempt to identify intra- household relationship among its members and its effects on child schooling. Specifically the article is designed to look for the answers of following questions: what are the principal determinants of power of mothers in making decisions or what is an appropriate way to measure decision- making power? How does this decision- making power of mothers in the household affects child schooling decision? Is this effect non-linear and non-monotonic as predicted by all recent literature? The objectives are explored by using the Living Standard Measurement Survey data of Pakistan for the period 2007-08. Article shows that the effect of any additional power given to mother’s increases child schooling but the effect is not non-monotonic.
