Abstract
How do policy-makers and practitioners in international development weigh evidence from impact evaluations? For example, would they prefer evidence from a randomized control trial done in a different region or evidence from a quasi-experimental or observational study done in their own country? You are invited to predict the results of an experiment at World Bank and Inter-American Development Bank impact evaluation workshops.
