The policy process is increasingly data-driven, but it is often challenging to make sense of competing estimates of program impacts. This four-day course will help you to understand where these estimates come from and which ones are the most credible. You will develop a more sophisticated understanding of the critical distinction between causation and correlation, you will learn about techniques that can provide plausible estimates of policies’ true impacts, and you will learn why these techniques often work… and why they sometimes don’t. You need no prior exposure to these concepts to take the course. We will be following a “ground-up” approach, under the assumption that you are learning the material for the first time

This course is made possible through a collaboration between Georgetown University in Qatar and the College of Public Policy at Hamad Bin Khalifa University, combining the expertise and resources of two of Qatar’s leading educational institutions.
