We analyze the consequences of a teenage pregnancy event in the short and long run in Mexico.

In the long run, we find that a teenage pregnancy results in a 1-1.2-year loss in years of…Continue

This paper estimates the effect of an unprecedented increase of drug-related violence in Mexico on the educational attainment, cognitive ability, time allocation, and employment behavior of young adults between the ages of 14 and 17.
