There are many more things that can be done using AidGrade’s data set of impact evaluation results. (And many things I am planning to do using completely different data sets!)
A selection of other questions that can be answered using the same data (collaborators welcome):
- What is the shape of different interventions’ effects over time? I tend to have repeat observations, e.g. 3, 6 or 12 months after the start of each intervention or after the program concluded.
- Regarding the finding that government-implemented programs sadly do not perform as well as NGO-implemented programs, even after controlling for sample size: what could explain this? Do the effects vary by the type of government or NGO?
- When do you observe more specification searching in the social sciences? I largely peeled this part off my job market paper to submit to another journal.
- What are the general equilibrium effects of the interventions?
- How do policymakers respond to the exogenous information shock provided by the results of a new study?
You might have seen that I am looking for an RA. It might be possible to collaborate on one or more of these projects if there were interest.
