Abstract

Asignaciones Familiares – Plan de Equidad (AFAM-PE) is a conditional cash transfer program implemented in Uruguay since 2008. It consists in a cash transfer given to households with children under 18 years old experiencing socioeconomic vulnerability. We analyze the impact of AFAM-PE on theprobability of contributing to social security on the household adults’.To this end, and given that programme entrance is based on a score, we apply the RegressionDiscontinuity approach, using the survey “Encuesta de Condiciones de Vida” tailored for the evaluation of this program. In this survey, information about individuals eligible to participate in the program as well as ineligible with similar characteristics is collected. The main results of the analysis are similar to those found for similar programs implemented in Latin America. We found no evidence of significant impact of AFAM PE neither on participation rate, employment, nor hours worked. However, we find that AFAM PE has a positive effect of eleven percent points on the probability of contributing to social security. These effects fall mainly on those responsible for charging the transfer. Furthermore, heterogeneous effects are found, being young, women and members of nuclear families the most affected.
