Summary or Abstract : This thesis explores the link between education and child labor in Latin America using cross-sectional analysis, recent methodological advances and simple theoretical tools. First, it proposes a methodology to estimate the economic cost for a child to be working. Child labor and schooling are not necessarily incompatible and child labor is not the only reason why children drop out of school. As a result, measuring the economic cost of child labor as the cost of not attending school results in an overestimation. In this dissertation, the real substitution effect between school and work is estimated to adjust downward the cost of school drop-out in order to estimate the economic cost of child labor. The methodology is applied to the case of Paraguay..
