Discontinuity Design
Compare outcomes Y for units just above and below the cut-off point
Units just above the cut-off point are very similar to units just below it – good comparison.
Cut-off

IMPACT
For a Discontinuity Design you need…
1) Continuous eligibility index (e.g. income) 2) Clearly defined cut-off.
Households with a score ≤ cutoff are eligible Households with a score > cutoff are not-eligible Or vice-versa
Example Progresa CCT
Eligibility for Progresa is based on national poverty index Household is poor if score ≤ 750 Eligibility for Progresa:
o o
Eligible if score ≤ 750 Not eligible if score > 750
Example of Progresa
