1. Anne Caroline Costa Resende. Avaliando resultados de um programa de transferência de renda: o impacto do Bolsa-Escola sobre os gastos das famílias brasileiras.

Degree: 2006, Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais

The aim of this work is to analyze the effects of cash transfers of public programs on households expenditures and their components, taking the Brazilian program Bolsa-Escola as a representative example. Many methodological possibilities are explored and compared using different matching estimators, in an attempt to enhance the understanding of non experimental methods. To achieve such objectives, it is used a non experimental method called propensity score matching. The aim of the matching is to find an ideal group of comparison for the treatment group from a sample of non participants, based on observable characteristics. From that point, the average treatment effect on treated can be computed by using distinct non parametric matching algorithms. It is used microdata from the Pesquisa de Orçamentos Familiares (POF) 2002-2003. Further, a sensibility analysis is made to certify that the propensity score model is well specified and still works in the presence of unobservable variables. Results suggest a positive effect of money transfers on the poor beneficiary households consumption. The fact that households expenditures are concentrated on education, hygiene products, clothing and general food instead of drinks, cigarettes and durable goods means that, at some level, the money transferred is being efficiently spent. Hence, the increased consumption of the observed households enhances their welfare, which means an immediate relief from poverty conditions. It should be highlighted that enhanced consumption due to the money transfers ameliorates households poverty adversities in the short run and also has effects in the long run. Such effects are related to childhood support in the sense that, if money transfers expenditures by the households are really focused in the right goods, it will improve households diet and consequently of their children. The consumption of goods related to education, health and food would present long run turnovers in the poverty cycle, as long as better nutritional status, health care, and education incentives were joined to improve the human capital of the children.

Este trabalho tem como objetivo analisar os efeitos de programas de transferências monetárias sobre os gastos totais bem como sobre seus componentes para as famílias beneficiárias, utilizando-se como representante o programa Bolsa-Escola. Pretende-se enfatizar sobretudo a exploração das diversas possibilidades metodológicas, com a finalidade de se contribuir, através da realização de um exercício metodológico comparativo utilizando-se diferentes estimadores de pareamento, para um melhor entendimento da aplicabilidade de métodos não experimentais. Para se alcançar os objetivos deste trabalho é utilizado um método não experimental conhecido como pareamento baseado no escore de propensão (propensity score matching). O objetivo do pareamento é encontrar um grupo de comparação ideal em relação ao grupo de tratamento a partir de uma amostra de não participantes, baseada nas características observáveis. A partir daí calcula-se o…

2. Betania Totino Peixoto. Uma contribuição para prevenção da criminalidade.

Degree: 2008, Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais

This thesis comprises three articles about criminality. Article one, Urban violence: a comparative analysis of victimization between São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Recife and Vitória, reviews the routine activities approach trying to incorporate some elements of rational choice models. The empirical analysis estimates the probability of victimization. The database is a victimization survey conducted by FIA/USP and ILLANUD, in 2002, which was carried out in the Brazilian capital cities of Recife, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Vitória. I consider five categories of victimization: aggression, robbery, theft, burglary and auto-theft. The more important factors to explain victimization are both the proximity between the victim and the offender and the victim attractiveness. The comparison between these cities shows that Recife is the one with greater probability of victimization, followed by São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Vitória. Article two, Evaluation of Fica Vivo Program in the Brazilian City of Belo Horizonte, carries out an evaluation of a State of Minas Gerais program aimed at preventing homicide in this Brazilian federation unit. In the case of the capital city, Belo Horizonte, it focus on the slums areas and currently it covers the dwellings of Morro das Pedras, Pedreira Prado Lopes, Alto Vera Cruz, Taquaril, Cabana de Pai Tomás, Ribeiro de Abreu e Conjunto Felicidade. As database I use both the geographical information system of the Minas Gerais police and the Brazilian Demographic Census of the National Statistics Bureau IBGE. The econometric procedures are based on double-difference and double-difference matching methods. The impact variable to be explained is the homicide rate, from 2000 to 2006, annually broken down into two six-month periods. We divided the program into four uneven periods according to each area expansion date. In general the results show differentiated impacts on the homicide rate for each slum. Whereas the most relevant impact was in Morro das Pedras, which is the pilot program, the impacts in the remaining slums are less relevant although statistically significant. Finally, article three, Economic Evaluation of the Homicide Prevention Program in a Slum Area of the City of Belo Horizonte, undertakes an economic evaluation of Fica Vivo Program in the slum of Morro das Pedras in Belo Horizonte. The cost-effectiveness and cost-benefit analyses were run for the 2004-2006 period. The costs were accounted for both the aggregated slums and Morro das Pedras, individually, based on information by the Social Defense Secretary (SEDS) and the State Police (PMMG). The main results show the existence of scale economies in program implementation and social protection actions. If one takes into account conservative estimates of the program costs, the average cost of Fica Vivo by beneficiary is about one third of the value spent by the Federal government for each beneficiary of the National Social Program of Income Transfer (Bolsa Família). Effectiveness is measured according to the methodology carried over in… Advisors/Committee Members: Andrea Maria Silveira, Monica Viegas Andrade, JOAO PEDRO WAGNER DE AZEVEDO, Monica Viegas Andrade, Rodrigo Reis Soares, Claudio Chaves Beato Filho, Ligia Maria de Vasconcellos.
