The Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management (APPAM) 2015 Fall Conference focused on 14 policy areas, including education, crime and drugs, family and child policy, and social equity. The conference theme was the “Golden Age of Evidence-Based Policy,” a reference to the number of evidence-based initiatives begun by the Obama administration.
Abt Associates gave 21 panel presentations and organized two roundtable discussions and five breakfast caucus sessions at APPAM 2015. These covered a range of Abt evaluations, methodological discussions, and research.
Abt staff also gave presentations on studies of the impact of housing assistance on homeless families, the effectiveness of comprehensive career ladder job training programs, the role of qualitative research in understanding the financial lives of Americans, and an examination of the validity of the urban food desert concept, to name a few.
