Abstract:

My paper will analyze whether, in India, a woman’s employment and control over the income she earns increases her say in household decision-making - specifically any association between her employment and the educational attainment of her daughter(s). I use the National Family Health survey of 91,196 households in 26 Indian states (1998-1999) to test the association between woman’s control over cash income earned from her employment outside the house and her household share of income – indicators of her bargaining power within the household – with her ability to spend on her daughter’s education. Researchers theorize that women with their own cash income have greater opportunities to leave the marriage if necessary. This increases their power within the household to allocate money for specific purposes like investment in child’s education in general and, in particular to the education of their sons versus their daughters. If mothers do exhibit preference for the well being of their daughters over their sons, then those who have greater control over their earnings and/or contribute a greater share to total household income and thus have a greater ability to bargain for their preferences in the household should allocate more money towards their daughters education and this should be reflected in the daughters’ level of schooling. I test two related hypothesis:
1. Increased maternal share of household income is associated with higher level of schooling for girls
2. Increased maternal control over earned income is associated with higher level of schooling for girls
