Public programs are designed to reach certain goals and beneficiaries. Methods to understand whether such programs actually work, as well as the level and nature of impacts on intended beneficiaries, are main themes of this book. Has the Grameen Bank, for example, succeeded in lowering consumption poverty among the rural poor in Bangladesh? Can conditional cash transfer programs in Mexico and Latin America improve health and schooling outcomes for poor women and children? Does a new road actually raise welfare in a remote area in Tanzania? The Handbook on Impact Evaluation provides a practical and comprehensive overview of the latest methods for evaluating public programs, targeted toward 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. Experimental and nonexperimental approaches for designing and evaluating programs are covered. 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 initiative, 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 program in Bangladesh, such as the Grameen Bank. The Handbook can be used in upper-level policy and economics courses, as well as a supplemental text in graduate development economics courses. The framework presented in this book can be very useful for strengthening local capacity in impact evaluation among technicians and policymakers in charge of formulating, implementing, and evaluating programs to alleviate poverty and underdevelopment.
