Synopsis: This volume provides a single collection some of the best articles on social experimentation and program evaluation that have appeared in the Journal of Policy Analysis and Management (JPAM).
From the Back Cover: Social experimentation and program evaluation are at the very heart of public policy analysis and hence, evidence-based policy making. However, no one can “speak truth to powers” with poorly executed, misleading and/or incorrect “evidence.” This volume examines the theory and conduct of evaluations. It covers the broad evaluation landscape including debates on the relative merits of social experiments vis-à-vis program evaluations, as well as the ethics and use of evaluations. But the mainstay of this volume is well-executed examples of social experiments and evaluations. When viewing the volume as a whole, you should find articles relying on various research designs, selection correction methods, estimators, sources of data, and substantive policy issues. Exposure to the fundamental issues surrounding the conduct of evaluations and examples of its practical application is imperative for current and future policy analysts and policy makers. This volume seeks to facilitate such exposure by placing in a single collection some of the best articles on social experimentation and program evaluation that have appeared in the Journal of Policy Analysis and Management (JPAM).
