The impact of India's JSY conditional cash transfer programme: a replication study

3ie Replication Paper 6, 2015

In this study, Natalie Carvalho and Slawa Rokicki conduct an internal replication of Lim et al.’s impact evaluation of India’s Janani Suraksha Yojana (JSY) intervention, a large-scale conditional cash transfer programme designed to incentivise the use of formal birthing facilities. The researchers find the original results robust to changes in model specifications and analysis. The study does find state- level differences in health coverage and mortality outcomes, which should be considered in future analyses of the programme.
