The Role of Education and Family Background in Marriage, Childbearing, and Labor Market Participation in Senegal

Résumé

The decisions that young individuals and their families make regarding transitions from school into work, marriage, and parenthood can produce longlasting effects on their opportunities and well-being. For young women, in particular, schooling duration may affect the timing of other key transitions, such as their age at marriage and at first birth, and hence also their ability to engage in remunerative work. This article investigates the complex interrelationships between these transitions, with a particular focus on the influence of education on the timing of marriage and childbearing and on the ensuing effects on labor market participation. We emphasize the role of family background in shaping these intertwined critical life-course decisions.
