Academic outputs

IFS Working Paper W21/45
We exploit novel data collected within a randomised controlled trial of a sanitation microcredit intervention to study how intra-household gender differences in perceptions of costs and benefits of sanitation impact investment decisions.

Reports and comment

We discuss how the cost of childcare has changed over time, and how it varies across the country and between different types of families.
