Yet many policy stakeholders, including development organizations, government officials and program proponents in both developed and developing countries, exhibit a reluctance to undertake formal evaluation of social programs.

Evaluating program performance is a key part of the federal government’s strategy to manage for results. The program cycle (design, implementation and evaluation) fits into the broader cycle of the government’s Expenditure Management System.

Cash transfers have been increasingly adopted by countries worldwide as central elements of their social protection and poverty reduction strategies. A growing number of studies provide rigorous evidence on the impact of cash transfers, and the role of specific cash transfer design and implementation features in shaping outcomes.

Intergovernmental transfers have been employed in all federations to achieve a variety of political and economic objectives.

Statistics represent an essential part of a study because, regardless of the study design, investigators need to summarize the collected information for interpretation and presentation to others. It is therefore important for us to heed Mr Twain’s concern when creating the data analysis plan.
