Abstract:

We investigate the long-run effects of a poverty alleviation resettlement (PAR) experiment launched in 1994 on the development of children at the time of resettlement. The PAR project is a government-sponsored voluntary resettlement aimed to alleviate poverty and provide better opportunities for children in poor villages. Overall, the results of the PAR experiment are not positive, for which we provide some possible explanations. First, people in the treated group are simply resettled to a designated area. A “one to many” relocation with multiple choices might be better. Second, the PAR program might have short-term benefits for immediately improve people’s living condition but the long-term impact could be negative because of constrained choice of employment and location-specific skill accumulation that later can become less beneficial. Third, there might be heterogenous impact not only across gender, but also along other dimensions that need to be taken into consideration in research and policy making.
