The study aims to assess the long-term effects of Nigeria's Free Primary Education (FPE) program on education, labor markets, and socio-economic outcomes. It compares treated zones in western Nigeria, spillover zones in Nigeria and Benin, and control zones in both countries. The research involves surveys, data analysis, and a power analysis to determine the sample size. Additional data collection was conducted to include a wider range of birth cohorts. The findings highlight the importance of the FPE program in increasing school attendance and completion, particularly for treated cohorts in the Western region.
