El impacto del Bono Juancito Pinto. Un análisis a partir de microsimulaciones


  • Yáñez, Ernesto

    () (Independiente)


El trabajo presenta una evaluación ex ante del Bono Juancito Pinto a partir del uso de técnicas de microsimulación. Específicamente, evalúa el impacto sobre la asistencia escolar, la pobreza y la desigualdad en la distribución del ingreso. Los resultados sugieren que el BJP ha tenido un impacto positivo en la reducción de la inasistencia escolar en el ciclo primario, ha colaborado en la reducción de los niveles de indigencia además de haber mejorado la distribución del ingreso -sobre todo en el sector rural del país. Posibles mejoras del BJP estarían vinculadas a diferenciar el monto transferido en función de la zona de residencia, lo que traería beneficios adicionales sin modificar significativamente los costos administrativos del programa.
