September 25, 2020: In our digital world, data is constantly being collected and stored during the everyday functions of governments, non-profit organizations, and private firms. This “administrative data” offers tremendous potential to improve lives through better social policies, but is often underutilized. J-PAL’s Innovations in Data and Experiments for Action Initiative (IDEA) is working to change that.
IDEA is excited to announce the release of the Handbook on Using Administrative Data for Research and Evidence-Based Policy co-edited by Shawn Cole, Iqbal Dhaliwal, Anja Sautmann, and Lars Vilhuber.
Starting September 28, 2020, join the IDEA Handbook Webinar Series, featuring presentations of each chapter by the author(s), and a live Q&A session. Find out more about our Fall 2020 schedule of webinars, and sign up for our mailing list to receive updates and webinar invitations.
