Family income and child outcomes: the 1990 cocoa price shock in Cote d’Ivoire

Denis Cogneau () and Remi Jedwab ()

No DT/2008/05, Working Papers from DIAL (Développement, Institutions et Mondialisation)

Abstract: We study the drastic cut of the administered cocoa producer price in 1990 Cote d’Ivoire and investigate the extent to which cocoa producers’ children suffered from this severe income shock in terms of school enrollment, increased labor, height stature and sickness. Comparing pre-crisis (1986- 1988) data and post-crisis (1993) data, we propose a difference-in-difference within-village strategy in order to identify the causal effect of family income on children outcomes. We find a strong impact of family income variation for the four variables we examine.
