Abstract:Using the Understanding Children's Work (UCW) project definition of child labour and data from the Mali Permanent Household Survey (EPAM, Enquête permanente auprès des ménages), the author highlights the gender difference in the competition between economic or non-economic labour and schooling. A quadri-variate Probit estimation enables an assessment of the interdependency between school and various kinds of labour: household chores (HHC), market-oriented (MO) activities and non-market-oriented (NMO) activities. Empirical results indicate differential gender socialization according to the gender of the offspring, gender bias in the division of tasks and time, and competition between labour activities and schooling.
