Oportunidades: Program Effect on Consumption, Low Participation, and Methodological Issues

Archived Abstract of Former PSC Researcher

Angelucci, Manuela, and Orazio Attanasio. 2009. "Oportunidades: Program Effect on Consumption, Low Participation, and Methodological Issues." Economic Development and Cultural Change, 57(3): 479-506.

In this paper we estimate the effect of the Mexican conditional cash transfer program, Oportunidades, on consumption, and we explore some issues related to participation in the program and to the estimation of treatment effects. We discuss the comparability of treatment and control areas, provide evidence that the expected transfer may not be sufficiently high to induce many eligible households to participate, and find positive effects on consumption.
