Using Administrative Data to Inform Public Policy
The Research Group on Human Capital will hold its fifth workshop on Friday, April 5, 2019, at the University of Quebec in Montreal. Seven academic researchers from the fields of Economics and Sociology will present recent work. The presentations primarily feature empirical research using microeconometric models, with a particular emphasis on questions of identification of causal effects. The workshop is intended to promote discussion and exchanges on the theme of the use of administrative data to inform public policy, broadly speaking, with a special interest in the role of public policies and interventions and their potential to equalize opportunities. Topics covered in this workshop include replicability, access and use of microdata, public policies, and social inequalities. The workshop is open not only to academics (professors, researchers, graduate students), but also to administrators and policymakers as well as to officials from governmental institutions with an interest in the topic.
The workshop will take place at the University of Quebec in Montreal, building Président-Kennedy, 201 Président-Kennedy Avenue (Place-des-Arts metro station), room PK-1140, from 9:10 AM to 4:45 PM.
