RACCANELLO, Kristiano. Quality of Life for Beneficiaries of an Unconditional Transfer Education Program in Mexico City. Econ: teor. práct [online]. 2022, n.56, pp.201-225.  Epub 25-Abr-2022. ISSN 2448-7481.

Education is a path to achieving greater wellbeing and improving Quality of Life (QoL), but economic distress often leads to school dropout. In 2007, the Mexico City Government established the Guaranteed Education Program to prevent dropout by students who lost financial support due to parental death or total and permanent impairment. In this paper, we focus on the perceptions of a stratified sample of beneficiaries (1,147 children and 806 adults) regarding QoL dimensions. Although our findings show that perception within most dimensions improves upon receiving the benefits of the Program, we suggest that program evaluations consider the adaptive perception process according to a hedonic analysis framework.
