In relation to household composition, I found that rates of child labor is higher in household with father absent. In fact, we found that immigrant children are a vulnerable group, even if they seem to have a higher level of education than non-migrant, they work longer hours for a payment Intergenerational transmission of informal employment in Mexico.
