Burkina Faso: Impact evaluation on girls education
In 2007-08, Mathematica Policy Research and the University of Ouagadougou conducted household and school surveys as part of MCC’s evaluation of the Burkina Faso Threshold Program, which sought to increase educational attainment through the construction of schools and complementary interventions. The surveys included 291 villages, of which 132 were participant villages and 159 comparison villages. The household questionnaire asked about household demographics, children’s educational outcomes (enrollment and attendance), and parents’ perceptions of education. The school survey asked about schools’ characteristics and children’s attendance and enrollment.
