The evaluation problem general

The Evaluation Problem - General

  • Providing evidence on impacts is an “evaluation” activity

  • An “impact” is about cause and effect; for gov’t program evaluations, it’s about attributing cause based on scientific research methods

  • To estimate impacts is to compare two states of the world: one with the program and one without; and to have outcomes that can be measured

  • The greatest difficulty lies in creating the world without the program
