challenges when evaluating sector support
Challenges when evaluating sector support
  • Attribution problem
  • Selection effects
  • Unobservables
  • Heterogeneity of interventions
treatment of unobservables
Treatment of unobservables
  • Check on random allocation of interventions
  • Double differencing
  • Exploitation of natural restrictions
  • Triangulation
quality of data
Quality of data
  • Analyse consistency through the linking of data
  • Systematic errors may be treated as unobservables
conclusions
Conclusions
  • At the sector level, interventions are heterogeneous and therefore an evaluation will rely mainly on secondary data.
  • In the social sectors, data become increasingly available.
  • Impact evaluations of sector support may help to analyse important issues.
  • Evaluation agencies must become familiar with the methods and techniques of rigorous impact evaluations.
  • We must further develop the methods for analysing secondary data.
  • It’s important to work closely together with partner countries.
