The cluster in the Philippines is supported by Innovations for Poverty Action.

The initial wave of the Philippines panel survey is now being planned. The regions covered in the Philippines are still to be determined, but the sampling strategy and survey questions will be similar to the Ghana panel.

This is an opportunity for researchers to:

  • Introduce a limited set of additional questions to the survey
  • Work with the Lab to plan and implement low-cost, quick interventions before the surveys are conducted
  • Propose research on survey and measurement methods
  • Plan experiments that take advantage of rich baseline data (Ghana) and assured follow-up surveys in four years (Ghana and the Philippines)
