Marking Time: An Analysis of Youth Hours of Work and Study in Urban Mexico

Publication Abstract

Levison, Deborah, K.S. Moe, and F. Knaul. 2008. "Marking Time: An Analysis of Youth Hours of Work and Study in Urban Mexico." Review of Development Economics, 12(4): 751-763.

This paper argues that a more complex view of work and schooling is critical to poor countries as they implement policies to increase educational attainment. In this analysis of 12-17-year-old girls and boys in urban Mexico, we expand the traditional approach in two dimensions by (1) moving from an analysis of participation to one of hours of participation, and (2) broadening the definition of work to include youth's household responsibilities.
