Title: The medium term effectiveness of an early childhood intervention. Evidence from a randomized controlled trial (with Sören Kliem)

Abstract: This study exploits a randomized controlled trial to investigate the effects of a German home visiting program for disadvantaged families on child and maternal outcomes at child’s age 8. Since the intervention started during pregnancy and continued until the second birthday we present results six years after the end of the home visits.  We use data from telephone interviews, on-site interviews, observations and developmental tests to assess children’s and mothers’ mental health, life satisfaction, cognitive and social development, parenting behavior, signs of child abuse or neglect as well as the family’s socio-economic status. Furthermore, we access administrative data to obtain information regarding the mother’s  and  child’s usage of health care services, and mother’s welfare usage and employment history.
