Labor income and domestic violence in Peru: does women's economic empowerment protect them against the risk of victimization?

Project: Research

Project Details

Description

This research analyzes the relationship between a key aspect of women's economic empowerment (their labor income) and the risk of domestic violence. Both theoretically and empirically, there are conflicting predictions and results: in some cases, higher incomes reduce violence, and in others, the relationship is reversed. In Peru, this relationship has been studied only in a general way. To obtain more precise data, this work will estimate the impact of women's labor income on their risk of violence in relationships and determine if this impact varies according to the level of income and the life cycle of the relationship. The methodology contemplates the fusion of databases such as ENDES and ENAHO 2008-2018, through an individual statistical match.
