PMMA-11083 Family allowances and child school attendance. An ex-ante evaluation of alternative schemes in Uruguay

Abstract

This proposal aims at undertaking an ex-ante evaluation of a reshaping of Asignaciones Familiares, a child cash transfer program that was established in Uruguay in 1942. The reformulation of this cash transfer program is being discussed in Uruguay at present. By carrying out microsimulations and endogeneizing household decisions, we will study the impact of alternative policy designs on several outcomes: income poverty and inequality, teenage labour market participation, teenage school attendance and adult labour force participation. Microsimulations will be done using the Uruguayan Household Survey (Encuesta Continua de Hogares, ECH) for the years 2006 and 2007.
