I have received research support for work on a number of projects generally related to human capital from the grant T32 HD007014, awarded to the Center for Demography and Ecology at the University of Wisconsin--Madison by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health & Human Development. This funding did not support any work on this paper.
---- Disclosure of Financial Relationships for Benjamin A. Olken ----
This project received financial support from the International Growth Centre (IGC), based at the LSE and Oxford and supported by the UK DfID.
I receive other research grants from the IGC (primarily supporting my work on property tax reform in Pakistan), and the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab, which I co-direct, receives other grants from DfID, primarily to support work on governance issues in developing countries. However, none of those grants are directly connected to this research.
