research overview

  • Professor Antman's research investigates the impact of international migration on family members left behind, focusing on the children and elderly parents of migrants that remain in Mexico when a migrant travels to the U.S. She has several papers looking at how parental migration affects children's schooling and child labor as well as papers on the impact of migration on contributions toward elderly parents left behind and their associated health outcomes. Her other research projects explore the allocation of resources within households and families, the endogeneity of race and ethnicity, and economic development in historical perspective.
