Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) are the basic most bias-free impact evaluation method. The units of analysis (frequently being people) are randomly assigned to a so-called treatment group, i.e. the group exposed to certain policy intervention (e.g. active labor market policy, or training), while the rest serve a control group. Then, pre-selected outcomes (e.g. employment or wages) are compared between the two groups.
Finance Impaq is deeply engaged in understanding the mechanism of work of processes and programs and hence is able to apply rigorous and up-to-date econometric methods to reveal the effects of such processes and programs.
Finance Impaq relies on Stata for conduct of impact evaluations.
