Examining the Effect of the Productive Safety Net Program on Household Food Calorie Intake: A Propensity Score Matching Analysis


Kalle Elias*

This study investigates the impact of the Productive Safety Net Program (PSNP) on household food calorie intake using a Propensity Score Matching (PSM) approach. The PSNP is a social protection program designed to enhance food security and alleviate poverty. The PSM method is employed to estimate the causal effect of the PSNP by matching treated and control households based on their propensity scores, which represent the likelihood of participating in the program. The analysis utilizes household-level data on participation in the PSNP and food calorie intake. The results provide insights into the program's effectiveness in improving household food calorie intake and contribute to the broader understanding of the role of social protection programs in addressing food insecurity.
