Impact evaluation of the Bono Vida Mejor program  

Year: 2017
Country: Honduras
Subject: Living Conditions & Poverty
Client: Government of Honduras

Since 2010 the government of Honduras has implemented a comprehensive public policy aimed at alleviating poverty and reducing inequality through the Development and Social Inclusion Secretariat.

As part of such a policy, the scheme known as “Bono Vida Mejor” (BVM) constitutes an annual household allowance, which is part of the government’s broader policy to break the poverty cycle, thus contributing to human capital creation. Such an allowance represents 10.5% of the income of households below the poverty line and about 30.9% of those in extreme poverty.

In 2017, seeking a rigorous impact evaluation of the BVM, the government of Honduras collaborated with the Inter-American Development Bank and the World Bank to develop an evaluation strategy. They appointed Econometría of Colombia to carry out a household survey and entrusted Sistemas Integrales to examine the survey´s compliance with good practices.

Sistemas Integrales provided expertise by:

  • reviewing the design of the digital questionnaire and evaluating field manuals
  • providing support for the training of field staff and direct supervision of fieldwork
  • overseeing the processing of partial results to certify the final data quality.
