Colombia - The Medium-term Effects of Home-based Early Childhood Development Intervention Impact Evaluation 2011, Midline Survey

Primary tabs

The Medium-Term Effects of Home-based Early Childhood Development Intervention Impact Evaluation (ECDIIE) covered 96 small towns in central Colombia, representing a large number of small communities across a relatively big geographical area. It exploited structures in place from the government's Conditional Cash Transfer Programme, Familias en Accion (FeA), which targets the poorest 20% of households in the country. There are currently three waves of data, a baseline, pre-intervention wave collected between February and June 2010, and a follow-up wave 18 months later between September and December 2011, at the end of the intervention period. The second wave of follow-up data collection occurred 2 years after the first follow-up data collection between September and December 2013. The beneficiaries of FeA periodically elect a female representative, called the Madre Lider (ML). We randomly selected three from each town (municipality), and then from the families represented by the ML we randomly selected 5 children aged 12 to 24 months to be eligible for the intervention. Within each municipality, eligible households were randomly allocated (at the municipality level) to each of the following treatment arms: 1. Control 2. Stimulation + Supplementation 3. Stimulation 4. Supplementation The stimulation intervention consisted of weekly visits to the homes of the target children, each visit lasting around one hour. The home visitors received a three-week training programme in activities designed to stimulate children at different ages. They also received a weekly curriculum as a guide, and a set of locally produced materials (homemade toys from recycling material, picture books, puzzles, etc.). The supplementation arm consisted of providing daily sachets of multiple micronutrient powder to mothers, via the home visitors, to add to the target child's food. Sachets were designed to provide iron (12.5mg), zinc (5mg), Vitamin A (300 µg retinol equivalent), Vitamin C (30mg) and folic acid (160 µg) for the children targeted.

Study Type: 
Impact Evaluation Survey
Primary Investigator Name, Affiliation: 
Orazio Attanasio; UCL
Sampling Procedure: 
The survey used a randomized experimental design to obtain rigorous and unbiased estimates of the impact of the stimulation and nutrition interventions, and of their interaction.
Questionnaires: 
At follow up, it was collected a variety of developmental indicators, including the Bayley test (for cognitive, language and motor development), the MacArthur Communicative Development Inventories (for vocabulary and expressive language), the Bates Infant Characteristics Questionnaire (for temperament), and the Rothbart Infant Behaviour Questionnaires (for attention focusing, inhibitory control and sociability amongst other socio-emotional traits). These data were again complemented by an extensive socio-economic questionnaire which included information on parental investments, time use and so on.
Other Processing: 
The scope of the study includes: - HOUSING AND HOME: Location and identification, Housing Characteristics, Distances, Expenses, Other revenues and transfers, Incidents in the past 18 months, Participation in “Familias en Accion”, Household structure and Food consumption of children in the household (for children between 6 months and 6 years). - EDUCATION, WORK AND HEALTH (FOR PERSONS OVER AGE 5): Education, Health and Work. - CHILDREN LESS THAN 6 YEARS: Institutional and non-institutional care, Nutritional status - growth and development, Home and Morbidity and Historical care arrangements. - ANNEX FOR MODULE 3 - TARGET CHILD: Interaction with biological parents (if don't live at home), Bates temperament scale, Quality of home environment, Time use, MacArthur Bates results and Rothbart Infant behavior. - BIOLOGICAL MOTHER: Time use, Empowerment, Family information, Contraception and reproductive history, Risk aversion, Inequality aversion, Knowledge of child development, Depression, Birth and breastfeeding of biological children, Physical development of biological children, Matching words to pictures and Haemoglobin. - PRIMARY CAREGIVER: ID and location, Education, Health, Work, Time use, Knowledge of child development, Depression and Matching words to pictures. - ANNEX FOR MODULE 3 - TARGET CHILD: Haemoglobin. - MADRE LIDER / HOME VISITOR: ID, Household info, Education, Participation in “Familias en Accion”, Work, Knowledge of child development and Matching words to pictures.
