Abstract (EN)We study the drastic cut of the administered cocoa producer price in 1990 Cote d’Ivoire and investigate the extent to which cocoa producers’ children suﬀered from this severe income shock in terms of school enrollment, increased labor, height stature and sickness. Comparing pre-crisis (1986- 1988) data and post-crisis (1993) data, we propose a diﬀerence-in-diﬀerence within-village strategy in order to identify the causal eﬀect of family income on children outcomes. We ﬁnd a strong impact of family income variation for the four variables we examine.
