On the Design of Educational Conditional Cash Transfer Programs and Their Impact on Non-Education Outcomes: The Case of Teenage Pregnancy

"Using a simple model to characterize adolescents' behavior, we show that the effect of educational Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) programs on teenage pregnancy depends on the limits and conditions of the programs. The model shows that when benefits are conditional on school success or wh...

Conditional cash transfers Education Incentives Teenage pregnancy Teenage risk-taking behavior "Using a simple model to characterize adolescents' behavior, we show that the effect of educational Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) programs on teenage pregnancy depends on the limits and conditions of the programs. The model shows that when benefits are conditional on school success or when the program has a binding duration limit, the CCT reduces teenage pregnancy rates. Using original data, we estimate this relation for two different CCT programs implemented in Bogotá, Colombia. The two programs differ in that only one of them conditions benefit renewal on school success. The empirical results are consistent with the predictions of the model. Only the program that conditions renewal of the transfer, reduces average teenage pregnancy rates. We also find that, also consistent with our model, the other program reduces teenage pregnancy rates only for those girls for which the duration limit is binding. © 2016 by De Gruyter 2016." 2016 2020-05-26T00:02:04Z info:eu-repo/semantics/article info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersion 19351682 https://repository.urosario.edu.co/handle/10336/23444 https://doi.org/10.1515/bejeap-2014-0162 eng info:eu-repo/semantics/openAccess application/pdf Walter de Gruyter GmbH instname:Universidad del Rosario reponame:Repositorio Institucional EdocUR
