The course will introduce the various quantitative methods that can be used to estimate the causal impact of a policy intervention. The aim is to give participants an understanding of the suitability of these empirical methods given the nature of the policy under consideration and the available data.
Participants who are involved in designing policy experiments, managing projects undertaking evaluation, or need to make decisions based on the estimated impact of policies will find this course particularly useful.
