This paper studies the effect of Connecticut’s Jobs First welfare reform experiment on the income distribution. We propose a novel approach to estimate various parameters that depend on the joint distribution of potential outcomes, including quantiles of the distribution of treatment effects, the fraction of ‘winners’ and ‘losers’, and average and total gains of the intervention.
