Design and Analysis of Impact Evaluations


Four-Day Online Training. This training is empowered with SPSS and STATA

April 3 – 6, 2022 from 3:00pm to 6:30pm (Amman time)

As the development goes on, many ask on different aspects of impact of the development funds that are being used for poverty eradication, uplift thru entrepreneurship and employment, to improve access to water and sanitation (WASH), gender empowerment, and access to reproductive health services, for example. There is a set procedure to measure the impact and progress towards project outcomes at different stages of project implementation. Applied Research Methods have the tools and skills that are essential for professionals who are working on impact evaluations and on research concepts to generate empirical evidence. Below are given detailed contents of the ‘Applied Research Methods’. This training will empower participants with practical tools that are essentially used in Applied Research Methods across the world. It will also empower participants to use SPSS/STATA as a tool to analyze data collected under Applied Research.
