Burkina Faso: Impact evaluation on girls education

May 14, 2010

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.

The data can be downloaded from here (STATA)

    I am really excited with your analysis of the data. Is it possible to share with us for learning purposes through mail for subsequent reports. I am an M&E Specialist here in Uganda and am sure we can learn a lot from each other.

    Wonderful blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused .. Any recommendations? Many thanks!
