Please join the School of Public Policy for a Development Circle presented by Eliana Carranza. Eliana Carranza holds a PhD in Political Economy and an MPA in International Development from Harvard University. Her work focuses on the empirical study of household behavior, including the implications of technological, labor market, and institutional changes for household economic and demographic outcomes and the status of women.
She will discuss the differences in relative female employment by soil texture are used to explain the heterogeneous deficit of female children across districts within India. Girls have a lower economic value where female labor opportunities are fewer. Consistently, higher relative female employment in agriculture improves the ratio of female to male children in districts that have a smaller fraction of loamy relative to clayey soils.
