The Impact of ‘Rice for the Poor’ on Household Consumption
This study investigates the impact of the 'Rice for the Poor' program - an almost universal program of Indonesian Social Safety Net (SSN) Programs launched in 1998. The general aim of the program was to mitigate the decrease of household nutrition well-being. The program has provided highly subsidized rice for poor households. Using the Indonesian Family Life Survey, this study implements propensity score matching combined with difference in difference method. It is revealed that the program has increased households' consumption on nutrient-rich, animal source food though aid-fungibilty was also present.
