Mathematica Policy Research: Evaluating the US Jobs Recovery Programmes

Another useful document from Mathematica Policy Research setting down principles on how to evaluate the jobs programmes rolled out under the Recovery Act in the US
The purpose of this white paper, provided as the final deliverable product of the pre-design study, is to provide guidance to DOL as it assesses potential methodologies for evaluating each grant.
The purpose of this white paper is not to recommend a single methodological approach as the best way to evaluate these grants, and it does not make such a recommendation. Rather, it explores the advantages and disadvantages of different methodological approaches so that DOL can consider its options for proceeding with an evaluation of these grants.
