The October edition of the IHDS newsletter is available!! It focuses on two key socio-demographic themes: the relationship between women’s marriage age and their political engagement; and the determinants of household choices for financial borrowings.

Using data from IHDS-II, the first paper finds that early marriage is a significant obstacle in women’s participation in politics.

In the second paper, the comprehensive nature of IHDS data enables the authors to examine the role of microfinance institutions in the selection of formal and informal sources of credit by households.
