We use different econometric techniques, from propensity score matching to multinomial

household budget shares in Senegal. When only considering the average impact of remittances

However, the impact of remittances disappears when the marginal spending behaviour is

remittance status. The marginal spending behaviour therefore suggests that, in the decision on

how to allocate expenditure, remittances are treated just as any other source of income.
