Abstract

Una extensa literatura sugiere que inversiones en etapas tempranas del ciclo de vida tienen implicancias de largo plazo sobre el capital humano acumulado, lo que a su vez se refleja en el rendimiento de los individuos en el mercado laboral. En este trabajo se explora el impacto del programa de transferencias condicionadas Juntos sobre el estado nutricional de niños menores de 5 años. Para ello, se aplican dos metodologías: (a) emparejamiento de hogares en base a características observables y doble-diferencia con emparejamiento; (b) estimaciones con efectos fijos distritales y maternos. Los resultados sugieren que el programa habría reducido la incidencia de desnutrición crónica extrema. Asimismo, condicionado a estar afiliado al programa, se detectan efectos positivos según el tiempo de exposición al programa para niños nacidos en hogares con madres relativamente bien educadas.
