Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

by Coffey, Michael John, Ph.D., The University of Arizona, 2011, 180; 3487477
Abstract (Summary)

This dissertation makes use of data from three large and detailed rural household surveys conducted in Haiti to examine elements of economic behavior in poor rural households. We use the earliest survey to formulate a set of hypotheses and use statistical meta-analysis to test them against all three surveys. Results in the areas of household vulnerability, form, migration, and education contribute to theory-refinement in Economic Anthropology.
