To understand whether and for whom treatment affected civic engagement, I combine demographic data from the survey with data on participation in civic activity across treatment
and control groups. The data on civic participation is from the household survey and an
event register. The former contains self-reports on the frequency of participation in civic
events while the latter contains detailed self-reports of participation in discrete civic events.
First, I discuss both sources of data and how the civic event register improves upon the
survey data, a standard method of measuring civic participation in the literature. Then, I
discuss the construction of the dependent variable measuring civic participation. Finally, I
report the econometric specification I use to analyze treatment effects.
