Experimental Design

Experimental Design
In this study, some areas are randomly assigned to receive a mixed-gender pick-and-drop transport service, others receive women's-only transport services, and a control group receives no new transport service.
Experimental Design Details
Randomization Method
Randomization done in Stata
Randomization Unit
In the pilot stage, we randomly assigned enumeration blocks to transport services, and individuals to different price levels for the transport.
Was the treatment clustered?
Yes
