PMMA-12680 Migration, Remittances, Labor Market and Human Capital in Senegal

Abstract

This study investigates how migration and remittances affect labor market participation in Senegal. Further, it examines the effect of remittances on human capital development. The results reveal that migration and remittances reduce labor market participation of household members with migrant. We find also that remittances increase expenditures on human capital development, as approximated by education and health spending. These findings hold true across specifications and econometric estimation procedures.
