Description:Winter School on ňĎFundamentals and Methods for Impact Evaluation of Public PoliciesňË
Location:Trento, Centro Congressi Panorama, Italy
Subject:The School is designed to be of particular benefit to PhD students as well as researchers in the Social Sciences, Economics and Statistics, willing to learn how to use micro data to inform policy making. The School will present 1) the fundamental principles of impact evaluation with a specific focus on the counterfactual theory of causal inference and 2) a variety of statistical tools for counterfactual analysis (including difference-in-difference and matching methods, regression discontinuity designs and quasi experimental/natural experiments settings). Extensive laboratory sessions will provide the opportunity to apply the various techniques to specific labour market, education and industrial policies.
