Impact Evaluation

May, 2013
Cape Town, South Africa
Instructor(s): Maria Laura Alzúa, José Galdo, Maria Adelaida Lopera.

This four-day workshop served as part of the PEP Support Program. It provided researchers with the knowledge, experience, and confidence necessary to conduct their own randomized evaluations of the impact of social policies or programs on targeted populations.

This workshop focused on the benefits and methods of randomization, how to choose an appropriate sample size, collect and compare data on both treatment and valid comparison groups, produce empirical evidence on the impact of specific program interventions, and administer the overall implementation of an evaluation. The methodology included classes, applied work with practical examples using Stata and Optimal Design, and team presentations.
