THE EFFECTS OF PARENTAL MIGRATION ON CHILD EDUCATIONAL OUTCOMES IN INDONESIA
de Brauw, Alan
This research evaluates the effect of belonging to a migrant household on the likelihood of attending kindergarten and senior secondary school, as well as the impact of migration on household education expenditures in Indonesia. Both linear probability models and ordinary least squares models are used to evaluate these relationships. The results indicate that belonging to a migrant household has a statistically significant impact on the probability that a four to six year-old child will attend kindergarten, and a weakly significant impact on the probability that a teenager will attend senior secondary school. In addition, migrant households were found to have lower education expenditures than non-migrant households, although the reason for this requires further research.
