PIERI-11242 Estimating Participation and Spill-over Effects in Conditional Cash Transfer Programs

Abstract

This research intends to compare the impact of different conditional cash transfer programs on key outcome variables. In particular, we will investigate whether there is just an income effect of the transfer on the outcome variables or whether the other components which aim to change the beneficiary behavior do have an additional impact on those key outcome variables. We call the latter, the participation effect. This issue is related to the efficiency and efficacy of the imposition of conditionalities on beneficiaries and their follow-up as those components are due to be a considerable chunk of the administrative cost of the programs. Finally, we will also investigate whether the program has (spill-over) impacts on non-beneficiary families who live in the same neighborhood as beneficiary families.
