BR-T1397 : Medium-Term Impacts of Access to Daycare on School Outcomes: Experimental Evidence from Rio de Janeiro

Project Status: Implementation

This project seeks to estimate the medium-term impacts of providing access to daycare to poor children in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Faced with excess demand for daycare centers (known as crèches in Brazil), the government of Rio allocated available slots to children between 0 and 3 years of age by lottery in December 2007. Outcomes on lottery winners and losers will be collected from school records of these children in 2017, when they are 9-12 years of age. The study would be the first to evaluate the medium-term effects of an at-scale daycare intervention with a Randomized Control Trial (RCT), in developed or developing countries.
