Centre d’Etudes de Populations, de Pauvrete et de Politiques Socio-Economiques / International Network for Studies in Technology, Environment, Alternatives, Development [Differdange, Luxembourg] Working Papers: CEPS/INSTEAD has recently added the following working papers:

A. “Fertility shock and schooling,” by Sandrine Koissy-Kpein, Mathias Kuepie, and Michel Tenikue (Working Paper No. 2012-12, February 2012, .pdf format, 25p.).

Abstract:

This paper uses Demographic and Health Surveys data from about 30 sub-Saharan African countries to investigate the link between the birth of an “unintended child” and schooling decisions of children (dropout and entry). After controlling for local unobserved heterogeneity, we show that, the birth of an “unintended child” hinders child schooling. It reduces the probability of current school enrolment. As for school dynamics, it increases the probability that a child aged 6 to 18 years drops out of school and it decreases the probability that a child aged 6 to 9 years starts schooling. This result suggests that, the unexpected birth of a child strengthens household’s resources constraints and reduces human capital investments. The results also highlight the importance of the timing of the unexpected birth and the heterogeneity of the effect according to child characteristics.

B. “The relationship between income and housing deprivation in Luxembourg: a longitudinal analysis,” by Alessio Fusco (Working Paper No. 2012-10, January 2012, .pdf format, 21p.).

Abstract:

The relationship between income and housing deprivation in Luxembourg is analysed at both a cross-sectional and longitudinal level using data from the Panel Socio-Economique ‘Liewen zu Lëtzebuerg’ (PSELL3) for 2003 to 2009. Long-term housing deprivation is negatively associated with long-term income but this relationship is not confirmed when controlling for unobserved heterogeneity through fixed effect models. This finding suggests that housing deprivation is less affected by short variations in income than by measures of
permanent income and that unobserved characteristics of households, such as their wealth or assets, may affect the relationship between long-term income and long-term deprivation.
