Village sanitation and child health: Effects and external validity in a randomized field experiment in rural India.

Hammer J, Spears D - J Health Econ (2016)

Bottom Line: Over a billion people worldwide defecate in the open, with important consequences for early-life health and human capital accumulation in developing countries.We find an effect of approximately 0.3 height-for-age standard deviations, which is consistent with observations and hypotheses in economic and health literatures.We further exploit details of the planning and implementation of the experiment to study treatment heterogeneity and external validity.

fig0020: Within-child baseline-endline difference in height-for age, Ahmednagar district.

Mentions: Fig. 4 plots the empirical cumulative distributions of the change between the endline and baseline surveys for these initially young children. The distribution for the treatment group is visibly to the right of the distribution for the control group. A Kolmogorov–Smirnov test rejects that these are the same distribution (p = 0.024).
