Description

How do we determine “what works”? Designs for evidence-based policymaking

Government wants to use its resources effectively, investing in programs and policies that have their intended effects. But studying programs and policies as implemented in real world contexts can be challenging. So how can we generate evidence to learn about program and policy effectiveness? In this talk Dr. Elizabeth Stuart, Professor at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, will talk about study designs that can be used to learn about the effects of programs and policies, providing a balance of rigor and relevance.
