''Household shocks and child labor in rural Malawi''
( 2007, Vol. 4 No.1 )
This paper investigates the impact of household shocks on the incidence and intensity of child labor in rural Malawi. Intensity is measured as the reported number of sessions that a child was working. Probit and zero-inflated negative binomial estimates fail to provide evidence in support of the hypothesis that child labor increases in response to the occurrence of shocks.
