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.

Reanalysis of health and educational impacts of a school-based deworming program in western Kenya Part 1: pure replication
3ie Replication Paper 3: Part 1, 2014
This is a replication study of Edward Miguel and Michael Kremer’s well-known impact evaluation of a school-based deworming programme in Kenya. The original study, Worms: Identifying impacts on education and health in the presence of treatment externalities (2004), found that deworming has a significant impact on reducing worm infections and increasing school attendance.
In this replication study, Alexander Aiken, Calum Davey, James Hargreaves and Richard Hayes, reproduce the econonomists’ analysis from the viewpoint of epidemiology. Part 1 (of the two-part study) is a pure replication that reexamines the coding and methodologies used by the original authors in their publication.
