''An Empirical Illustration of Positive Stigma towards Child Labor''
( 2010, Vol. 30 No.1 )
This empirical note complements the qualitative and theoretical research on positive household stigma towards child labor. We use data from Guatemala and two instruments for measuring stigma: a child's indigenous background and household head's childhood work experience. We then adopt binomial probit regression methods to illustrate that positive stigma has a large effect on child labor practices, and a modest effect on school enrollment.
Keywords: child labor, education, indigenous, stigma, Guatemala
