Extrait de la présentation :
"The Impact Evaluation Methodologies have only recently been extensively used in Population Studies. It is a ground-breaking topic that can be extremely promising for those interested in assessing the impact of both policies and external changes on demographic behavior.
This Winter School covers the principles, methods and issues related to causal inference in population studies. Through a combination of methodological lectures, case studies and hands-on computing sessions, the school covers a range of topics, including randomized experiments, propensity score matching, difference-in-differences estimation, instrumental variables and regression discontinuity designs.
The Winter School in Fundamentals and Methods for Impact Evaluation in Population Studies (IEPS) is meant to create an international and highly qualified learning environment, which should allow participants to be actively involved in workshops and seminars and to experiment innovative ways of collaborative learning under the supervision of re-known academics and experts from different Universities and Research Centers.
The Winter School is open to thirty international students.
Scholarships may be awarded to ten citizens of Developing and Transition Economies Countries selected on a competitive basis.
Each eligible applicant will be assessed according to five criteria : academic and professional curriculum, Statistics knowledge, Population Studies knowledge, personal motivation and recommendation."
