3ie Replication Paper Series

The replication paper series (RPS) expands the benefits of 3ie’s replication programme by providing a publication and dissemination outlet for all replication studies of development impact evaluations. 

The RPS publishes online and hard-copy replication studies of impact evaluations in 3ie’s online Impact Evaluation Repository, including replication studies funded by 3ie through the replication windows or produced in-house as well as independently submitted replication studies.

Recalling extra data: a replication study of Finding missing markets

3ie Replication Paper 5, 2015

In this study, Wood and Dong conduct an internal replication of Finding Missing Markets (and a Disturbing Epilogue): Evidence From an Export Crop Adoption and Marketing Intervention In Kenya (2009). The original impact evaluation, by Ashraf et al. found that an agricultural commercialisation programme targeting new adopters was most effective at increasing smallholder farmer household income levels. The replication study generally reproduces the original findings, albeit with significantly lower coefficients for some of the main outcomes of interest.
