Do antipoverty programs reduce inequality? Evidence from Ethiopia,

We examine trends of consumption inequality among culturally and socially defined groups in Ethiopia, India and Peru during the period 2006-2016. We find a strong correlation between living standards and social protection program coverage indicating positive targeting efficiency. We also find that inequality among program participants is much lower than non-participants. Second, a decomposition of total inequality shows that within group inequality consistently accounts for a larger share of total inequality for all groups considered.
