Resumen

"This paper evaluates the middle-term effects of sibling’ sex composition on early childhood development and analyzes the possible channels behind the findings. The identification strategy overcomes parental preferences’ bias of children sex composition, due to the randomness of the sex of the second-born child. Results show that first-born boys who have a same-sex younger sibling have lower levels of motor skills and non-cognitive development. In contrast, first-born girls are not affected by having a younger sister or brother. The main drivers of these differences are the lower probability of boys with a same-sex sibling to live with both biological parents, less investment in quality time from parents, and reduced probability of attending school".
