Risks and Investment in Education
- 31 March, 2017
This project analysed the effects of household income risk on schooling investment in rural India. The findings from this project suggest that income risk faced by poorer households is an important reason for the persistence of low educational achievement and outcomes in Bihar, particularly for female children. This project is one of the first to utilize subjective expectation data to analyse the effects of income risk on schooling in a developing country.
