  7. Abstract:
  8. This study aims to estimate impact of the energy subsidy reform on households’ head time allocation in rural and urban areas in to 2011 to 2013 by making use of treatment effect particularly dose response function approach. Our main contribution is estimation and calculation of labor supply reaction to the unconditional cash transfer by dose of the subsidy that they received, while the previous works in this literature have used the well know binary variable of being in the exposure of program. To control for the demand determinants which are deriving the labor demand, we include the province level GDP and unemployment rate in the model. Our findings show that the subsidy dose does not have significant effects on the weekly work hours over 2011-2012, but it is significant and negative for higher doses over 2011-2013
