New Registry for Impact Evaluations in International Development

The 3ie Registry for International Development Impact Evaluations (RIDIE) is a registry of impact evaluations related to development in low and middle income countries. The purpose of the registry is to enhance the transparency and quality of evaluation research as well as to provide a repository of impact evaluation studies for researchers, funders, and others.

RIDIE will register any development impact evaluation that rigorously attempts to estimate the causal impacts of a program, including but not limited to randomized control trials. It is intended to be a prospective registry in which researchers and evaluators can record information about their evaluation designs before conducting the analysis, as well as update information as the study proceeds and post findings upon study completion.

The first 100 official registrations will be automatically entered in a lottery to win Microsoft Surface RT or Apple iPad 2 tablet computers.
