No wp-2017-201, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

Abstract: This paper examines Chile Solidario, a social protection programme that provides poor households in Chile with preferential access to a conditional cash transfer programme designed to facilitate investments in children's health and education. We assess the programme's longer-term impact on educational attainment and labour income at ages 25-28. Overall, Chile Solidario has a positive and long-lasting effect, albeit with significant impact heterogeneity.
