DLSU-AKI Policy Brief, Volume VII, No. 8.: Cash Transfers and Temptation Goods: An Analysis on the Impact of Cash Transfers on Poor Households’ Consumption of Sugar-Sweetened Beverages in the Philippines

Sugar intake has been increasing globally and locally for individuals. Meanwhile, Philippine institutions continue to provide cash transfers (CTs) to poor households. This paper used propensity score matching and average treatment effects on the treated (ATET) evaluation method to compare the sugar-sweetened beverage (SSB) consumption of poor households with CTs to their consumption if they had not received CTs and determine the characteristics of households who were likely to receive CTs.
