Summary
"Using evaluations of actual social programs as examples, Learning More from Social Experiments makes the case that many of the limitations of random-assignment studies can be overcome by combining data from these studies with statistical methods from other research designs." "Bloom evaluates the properties of cluster randomization, its relevance to different kinds of social programs, and the complications that arise from its use. He pays particular attention to the way in which the movement of individuals into and out of clusters over time complicates the design, execution, and interpretation of a study."--Jacket
