We examine the labor market participation, employment and earnings of women who have had a child during their adolescent years. The literature shows that adolescent mothers experience high secondary school dropout rates and are less likely to obtain a college degree, which will then affect their labor market participation and earnings later in their lives. We also examine other pathways relating to childrearing responsibilities and delayed labor market entry. Cognizant of the endogeneity in this relationship, we explore a number of instruments including age of menarche, miscarriage/abortion, using the Demographic Health Surveys as well as household surveys from countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. If necessary, we also intend to use recursive structural models and Lewbel approach as ways to deal with the endogeneity problem and lack of outside adequate instrumental variables.
