Secondary Outcomes (explanation)
INTENSTIY OF INTEREST: Responses to the following post-intervention questions measure the intensity of interest in Forsa and will serve as secondary outcomes:
1. On a scale of 1-5, how much do you want to join Forsa? Your answer will not affect your Forsa benefits. (1=DID NOT WANT TO, 2=A LITTLE, 3=SOMEWHAT, 4=MODERTELY, 5=VERY MUCH)
2. How likely are you or someone from your household to approach your local NGO about joining Forsa in the next two weeks? (1=EXTREMELY UNLIKELY, 2= UNLIKELY, 3=NEUTRAL, 4=LIKELY, 5=EXTREMELY LIKELY)
3. How likely are you to recommend Forsa to a friend or neighbor? Your answer will not affect your Takaful or Forsa benefits. (1=EXTREMELY UNLIKELY, 2= UNLIKELY, 3=NEUTRAL, 4=LIKELY, 5=EXTREMELY LIKELY)
MECHANISM-RELATED OUTCOMES: Responses to post-intervention follow-up questions on the following topics are designed to measure perceptions of how Forsa functions and can be used to test what information was communicated through the video message and what most affected household interest in Forsa.
• Duration of Takaful cash transfers either with or without joining Forsa
• Value of and expected monthly income from the asset transferred through Forsa’s self-employment modality
• Time cost, expected monthly income, and expected longevity of the employment opportunity offered through Forsa’s wage employment modality.
• Perceived potential monthly income from asset-based or wage employment - (gender specific?)
• Expectation of non-monetary benefits either with or without joining Forsa
TAKE-UP OF FORSA IN ADMINISTRATIVE DATA: Working with the Ministry of Social Solidarity, we aim to acquire administrative data on whether households actually join Forsa following the intervention and its rollout in eligible communities. Should we obtain these data, “enrollment in Forsa” will be a key secondary outcome. However, we refrain from pre-specifying this as a primary outcome for a concern that data acquisition may be difficult.
