Imelda uses the largest fuel-switching program in Indonesia to identify a causal impact of cooking fuel choice on infant mortality. After the liquid petroleum gas (LPG) subsidy program went into effect in 2007, the number of households using kerosene significantly decreased and the number of households using LPG significantly increased, from 42 per cent to 12 per cent and from 9 per cent to 46 per cent, respectively.
