CEBALLOS MINA, Owen Eli  y  DUQUE GARCIA, Carlos Alberto. Unpaid domestic work: consumption and investment in the human capital of Mexican families. Prob. Des [online]. 2023, vol.54, n.215, pp.27-53.  Epub 18-Mar-2024. ISSN 0301-7036.  https://doi.org/10.22201/iiec.20078951e.2023.215.70052.

This article studies the behavior of the magnitude of unpaid domestic work (TDNR) alongside family income, distinguishing between the production of consumer goods and investment. The theoretical proposal predicts that as monetary income increases, the time devoted to investment in human capital increases to the detriment of domestic consumer production. Data from the ENUT-2019 (INEGI, 2023) and a two-stage semiparametric model were used to estimate the TDNR hours devoted to investment and consumption over income distribution. The results support the theoretical hypothesis and are relevant evidence for public policy decision-making concerning poverty, social mobility and welfare issues.

Palabras llave : income; unpaid work; investment; human capital; consumption.
