Abstract/Description: In this thesis, I evaluate the impact that social protection program "Red De Oportunidades" (RDO) had on a variety of socio-economic outcomes in Panama. These include, but are not limited to the poverty rate, income, education, and health. Results describe a relatively small negative effect on the outcomes of interest. However, the measurements do not immediately translate to a definitive statement about the effects of RDO. Without controlling for fixed effects, the coefficient for all dependent variables is overstated; highlighting the importance of controlling for unobservable variables. Due to data problems and time constraints, the results do not provide a conclusive statement about the effects of RDO, but they provide insight into the challenges of studying the broad subject of poverty and the complex effects of conditional cash transfer programs like RDO in different contexts.
