RAND: Elevating Evidence – How to Analyze Research Data and Inform Policy Decisions

10:00 AM – 12:00 PM on August 8, 2023

Public policy research can help the government solve messy problems by estimating the effects of different policies. But, even when policies can be tested, analyzing the resulting data is a challenge. As a nonprofit, nonpartisan research organization, RAND can help policymakers by providing both the evidence and the analysis needed to inform smart policy decisions.

In this masterclass, RAND’s Christine Eibner will provide valuable insights to help congressional and other public service staff strengthen their own policy analysis skills, including how to

  • better understand data infrastructure and the different types of data
  • make strong assessments of research findings
  • parse conflicting evidence
  • become better research advocates.
