Domestic Public Policy

Experimental Innovation in Policy

Grant Year: 2016


Ron Haskins and James Manzi will lead an effort to help public officials make greater use of randomized controlled trials to improve their policies and programs. They will work with public officials in the Michigan Office of Child Support Enforcement to set up trials to help them increase the collection of child support payments from non-custodial parents. The project’s findings will appear in a report and a series of briefings.
