Abstract: In scholarly literature the impact of sibling structure is commonly examined
in connection with child health and school attendance. The aim of my bachelor
thesis is to determine what influence has the particular sibling structure
on child labor, which is not studied so often, and the school attendance related
to the subject. The first part dwells on models of resource allocation
within household and description of basic mechanisms regarding the method
in which the structure of siblings influences resource allocation within household.
Main emphasis is laid on theoretical model with household production.
Hypothesis about effect of sibling structure is then empirically tested using
data from two African countries - Sierra Leone and Niger. Based on this
analysis, it is possible to conclude that particular structure of siblings do not
have fundamental influence on recourse allocation within household. Last but
not least, reasons of differences between chosen countries are discussed in the
conclusion.
