This Users Guide targets researchers and policy practitioners working on social protection issues and/or private transfers. It is a companion how-to guide for ADePT Social Protection, a software that examines how the beneficiaries and/or benefits of social protection programs and private transfers are distributed across quintiles, deciles or other population groups. The software creates a maximum of 24 standardized tables and 3 graphs that examine the coverage, the generosity, the incidence, the impact on poverty and inequality, the cost-benefit, and the inclusion and the exclusion errors of these programs separately and in combination. The User Manual starts with a brief theoretical framework; walks users through the steps needed to prepare, process and analyze survey data with ADePT SP; provides guidance on the interpretation of the analytical results; and discusses how to use the software for more complex tasks, like sensitivity analysis, simulations, analysis of program compliance with its own rules, and for benchmarking.
