Program Evaluation

Upjohn Institute economists rely on decades of experience to design and conduct studies that determine programs' true quality of implementation and effectiveness.

In devising evaluations, we work closely with clients to focus on the research questions and to design studies that attribute unbiased outcomes to program activities. Depending on a project’s unique circumstances, we’ll recommend one of four types of evaluation: 1) process evaluation, 2) developmental evaluation, 3) net impact evaluation, or 4) cost-benefit analysis.

We have the expertise and experience to help clients set up a randomized control trial to conduct a net impact evaluation of their project or to design a quasi-experimental methodology for use with administrative data.
