How large economic stimuli generate individual and aggregate responses is a central question in economics, but has not been studied experimentally. This study provided one-time cash transfers of about USD 1000 to over 10,500 poor households across 653 randomized villages in rural Kenya. We ask you to predict the short and long-run effects of the program. 10% of respondents to this survey will receive an accuracy reward of up to $100. There is also a $40 reward if you complete at least 4 of these long-run surveys.
