Determinantes y problemas del trabajo infantil para Colombia : el trabajo infantil como sustituto de la educación de los menores de edad
González Terán, Ángela María
The model of Basu and Van (1998) raises the luxury axiom according to which parents use child labor as a strategy to escape poverty. From this approach , if the economy is in a situation of multiple equilibria, it may happen that the application of the laws prohibiting child labor lead to a deterioration in household welfare, increasing poverty levels, reinforcing the status of vulnerability of young workers. Using data from the National Survey of Quality of Life (Colombia, 2012), we estimates a multinomial logit model to test empirically which are indeed the factors that lead children to do some of the following activities: work, study, do both activities or not perform any.
