Abstract

Since the mid-1990s, conditional cash transfer programmes have rapidly proliferated in Latin America, although little research has examined the characteristics of families who do not meet programme conditionalities. In order to contribute to this gap in knowledge, this study sought to identify the individual, family and programme variables associated with not meeting conditionalities of Chile’s CCT.The study found that certain variables related to family vulnerability were associated with not meeting conditionalities. These findings uncover an important contradiction in Chile’s CCT programme, since while seeking to guarantee social inclusion the programme may in fact be contributing to greater exclusion.
