Programas sociales en Argentina y bienestar: Impacto de la moratoria previsional y de la AUH
[Social Programs in Argentina and Welfare: The impact of pension moratorium and the AUH]

Listed author(s):
  • D Elia, Vanesa

This paper provides empirical evidence on the impact on the welfare of the most important social programs implemented in the last decade in Argentina: the Inclusion Pension Plan and the Universal Child Allowance (UCA), and discusses which of these redistributive instruments presents the highest aggregate utility. To do this, non-experimental econometric techniques combined with various welfare indicators are used. We find that both programs increased the welfare of beneficiary households, and that the impact of the UCA exceeds in all cases that of the Inclusion Pension Plan. Likewise, it is evidenced a positive effect on general welfare.
