Advanced Training in Economic Analysis and Management - Micro-Econometrics – Quantitative Assessment of Public Policies II

OCP Policy Center, Rabat

Quantitative assessments of Public Policies are becoming increasingly requested for different programs, particularly those public related to economic and social development. These evaluations are intended to determine, ex-post, if a program has reached its goals. They also test the effectiveness of different strategies to achieve specific outcomes. This course is actually composed of two parts (I and II) which are complementary and which should preferably be taken together. The two parts are advanced theoretical and practical introduction to the main econometric evaluation methods of impact.

Objectives :

• Understand the “why” and “how” of the econometric evaluations of public policies;
• Explore the foundations of the four main econometric methods of impact assessment;
• Apply each of the methods;
• Master the Stata software;
• Interpret and explain in detail the findings.
