Description
  • Abstract

    The NSTP data set provides a comprehensive overview of non-contributory social transfer programmes in developing countries. It covers 186 programmes in 101 countries up until 2015. We provide the data in two formats. The text format consists of a list of countries included and descriptive programme profiles. The table format was obtained by encoding all details and characteristics of the respective social transfer programmes in panel form and is accompanied by a codebook.
Temporal Coverage
  • 2015 / 2016
  • 2015 / 2016
Sampled Universe
We included programmes that were in operation in 2015. While the earliest programme started in 1912, most programmes were adopted starting in the 1990s.
