International remittances often play a substantial role during times of crises following natural disasters. In November 2013, Typhoon Haiyan crossed the Philippines, affecting approximately 3.4 million families. This study combines the 2013 and 2014 Annual Poverty Indicators Surveys into a pooled cross-section to estimate how household remittance receipts responded to the typhoon.
