Download (87kB) | Preview
Traditional literature on impact evaluation often deals with binary programs. In reality, a program can provide different amounts of treatment for people, and it is regarded as a continuous variable. This paper discusses impact evaluation of a continuous program using matching methods and illustrates how to estimate impact of foreign remittances on per capita expenditure in Vietnam.
