An exercise to evaluate an anti-poverty program with multiple outcomes using program evaluation
To measure the effectiveness of programs with multiple outcomes, I combine multidimensional poverty measures with difference-in-difference matching estimators. I apply this technique on an anti-poverty program and show it is a more comprehensive measure of poverty reduction than a unidimensional measure.
