CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The 'Handbook on Impact Evaluation' provides a practical and comprehensive
overview of the latest impact evaluation methods for public programs, targeted
towards researchers as well as policy makers. This book bridges the latest
econometric research on impact evaluation with the field experience of program
officials and evaluators. The authors outline and discuss econometric methods
for designing and evaluating programs; these include experimental and
nonexperimental approaches, as well as methods for examining distributional and
structural impacts of programs. Discussions and recent case studies are
presented for each chapter that draw on the practical experience of program
officials and researchers in implementing different initiatives including
policies on schooling, microfinance, health, and infrastructure. For
researchers interested in learning how to use these models with statistical
software, the Handbook also provides STATA exercises in the context of
evaluating major microcredit programs in Bangladesh, such as the Grameen Bank.
The 'Handbook' can be used in upper-level undergraduate policy and economics
courses and in graduate policy courses, as well as a supplemental text in
graduate development economics courses. The 'Handbook' will be useful for
students, researchers, and policy makers.
