L’objectif de cet article est de questionner la capacité des aides au logement en Russie à venir en aide aux familles vulnérables face au renchérissement des coûts du logement. Afin de mener cette étude d’impact, nous recourons à une analyse de ‘propensity score matching’, à partir des données Russia Longitudinal Monitoring Survey de 2003. L’idée est de construire un groupe de comparaison captant la situation des ménages bénéficiaires avant l’allocation des aides, sur la base des caractéristiques observables des ménages non bénéficiaires. Finalement, la comparaison entre les distributions pré-intervention et post-intervention indique que l’aide publique au logement exerce un impact très limité sur le revenu des ménages et est incapable de réduire la pauvreté, en raison notamment d’un ciblage défaillant. The aim of this article is to discuss about the capacity of Russian housing benefits to help vulnerable families who face an increase of their housing costs. In order to undertake this incidence analysis, we use 'propensity score matching' techniques and micro-data from the Russia Longitudinal Survey Monitoring of 2003. The idea is to build a comparison group which describes the situation of beneficiaries households before they receive housing benefits, on the basis of observable characteristics of non-beneficiaries households. Finally, the comparison between the pre-intervention distribution and the post-intervention distribution indicate that public housing benefits have a very limited impact on households income and are unable to reduce poverty, because of a failing targeting.
