At J-PAL North America, we focus on catalyzing and supporting randomized evaluations of social programs. We also want to make what we have learned from our rigorous evaluations actionable for policymakers so that they can act on the best available evidence about what works best and why.
Over the past few years, researchers affiliated with J-PAL have conducted more than 100 ongoing or completed randomized control trials to answer critical policy questions in North America, as well as hundreds more around world. A rich database of these evaluations is available here.
You can view a summary of some of these key findings in our “Evidence Wrap-Up” here.
