Methods for Program Impact Evaluation
MEASURE Evaluation will host a one-hour webinar Thursday, September 25, at 10:00am EDT. The webinar will focus on the How Do We Know if a Program Made a Difference? A Guide to Statistical Methods for Program Impact Evaluation manual. Peter Lance, MEASURE Evaluation Research Associate and an author of the manual, will lead the presentation and discussion.
Register online to attend the webinar. After registering, you can access the webinar on September 25 using your provided email address and a link that will be sent to you.
How Do We Know if a Program Made a Difference? A Guide to Statistical Methods for Program Impact Evaluation provides an overview of core statistical and econometric methods for program impact evaluation (and, more generally, causal modelling). More detailed and advanced than typical brief reviews of the subject, it also strives to be more approachable to a wider range of readers than the advanced theoretical literature on program impact evaluation estimators. It thus forms a bridge between more basic treatments of the essentials of impact evaluation methods and the more advanced discussions. It seeks to discuss impact evaluation estimators in a thorough manner that does justice to their complexity, but in a fashion that is approachable.
