Social Policy Analysis
A large part of our policy work is focused on analysis that provides insights for policymakers on the most binding constraints faced in a particular setting. Our interactive microsimulation policy models are tailor-made to suit clients’ unique research and policy development questions. The easy-to-use software and apps that we design provide policymakers with the ability to visualise and experiment with the results of household surveys and other large-scale datasets, change parameters, adjust programme inputs (based on cost and cost-effectiveness measures), and predict the probable outcomes of various social policy scenarios. These unique tools make it possible for policymakers to play with statistical models without the need for advanced coding techniques. Clients can interact directly with data from the field, while observing the social impact of different policy scenarios and fine-tuning policy decisions. Our social policy analysis tools thus empower policymakers to design better and more cost-effective policies.
