Introduction to impact assessment

cemmap and the ESRC Centre for the Microeconomic Analysis of Public Policy (CPP) at IFS are co-organising a course on impact assessment in February 2015. The course will introduce the various quantitative methods that can be used to estimate the causal impact of a policy intervention and 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.
