This book reviews quantitative methods and models of impact evaluation. The formal literature on impact evaluation methods and practices is large, with a few useful overviews. Yet there is a need to put the theory into practice in a hands-on fashion for practitioners. This book also details challenges and goals in other realms of evaluation, including monitoring and evaluation (M&E), op ...

Impact Evaluation in Practice

Gertler, Paul J. et al. [2011]

The Impact Evaluation in Practice handbook is a comprehensive and accessible introduction to impact evaluation for policymakers and development practitioners. The book incorporates real-world examples to present practical guidelines for designing and implementing evaluations. Readers will gain an understanding of the uses of impact evaluation and the best ways to use evaluations to design poli ...

This study examines fertility regulation in Kazakhstan, with dual emphases on providers' attitudes toward abortion and the public financial costs of abortion provision. Though abortion incidence declined sharply in the 1990s in Eastern European countries and in the former Soviet republics, it stagnated at relatively high levels in the early 2000s, accounting for a substantial proportion ...

Management and conservation of populations of animals requires information on where they are, why they are there, and where else theycould be. These objectives are typically approached by collecting data on theanimals’ use of space, relating these to prevailing environmental conditionsand employing these relations to predict usage at other geographical regions.Technical advances in wildlife te ...
