Cash transfer, In-Kind, or both? Assessing the Food and Nutrition Security Impacts of Social Protection Programs in Indonesia

We evaluate the relative and multiple overlapping effects of two main social protection programs in Indonesia, namely Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) and in-kind transfer/Subsidized Rice Program (Raskin), on food and nutrition security. Using panel data that recorded both CCT and Raskin recipient status, we estimate the impact of CCT and Raskin using both Inverse Probability Weighting models and conventional regression method. We find that CCT had a much greater impact on food and nutrition security than Raskin. However, the multiple-treatment effect between CCT and Raskin is not significantly different from zero. The results suggest to reformulate these overlapping policies.
