Evaluating the Long-Term Effects of Policy Interventions: MDRC’s Learning from Administrative Data Project
Grant Year: 2018
Fred Doolittle will direct the research and publications program of the Learning from Administrative Data Project. In order to measure the long-term impacts of policies and programs designed to increase economic opportunity and social mobility, he will link data from an inventory of randomized controlled trials, undertaken over the past two decades, to administrative records recording outcomes such as employment, earnings, post-secondary degree attainment, and receipt of public assistance. The project’s findings will appear in a series of reports and policy briefs.
