This midterm report follows the analysis plan approved by the Peer Review Group (PRG). We start by discussing the quality of the data and its suitability for a difference-in-difference analysis. We then illustrate the impact of the Millennium Villages (MVs) on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) after two years of intervention without adjusting for differences in baseline characteristics. Next we present the methodology for the identification of programme effects. We then discuss in detail the impact of the intervention on poverty, income, food security, child health and education. Finally we discuss the heterogeneity of programme impacts across gender and administrative district, and we explore the presence of spatial spillover effects.
