Abstract
Family related chracteristics are important determinants of individual outcomes. Also, fertility is a process closely related to development. As part of a body of literature investigating the effect of family size on schooling, this study develops an estimation using data for Colombia during 2010 to 2013. Building on exogenous variation in the number of siblings using multiple births and preferences over children’s sex, this research exercise aims to provide some guidance and evidence about the relationship between children’s quantity and quality.
