Abstract

This paper uses micro data from the 1980, 1991, and 2000 population censuses to investigate the role of changes in the industry mix in accounting for the differential trends in the incidence of child work (ages 10–15) across Brazilian states. We find that exogenous compositional changes account for around 20% of the observed fall in child employment in rural areas.
