J‑PAL Amérique du Nord
J-PAL North America, based at MIT, leads J-PAL’s work in the North America region. J-PAL North America conducts randomized evaluations, builds partnerships for evidence-informed policymaking, and helps partners scale up effective programs.
Our work spans a wide range of sectors including health care, housing, criminal justice, education, and economic mobility. We leverage research by affiliated professors from universities across the continent and a full-time staff of researchers, policy experts, and administrative professionals to generate and disseminate rigorous evidence about which anti-poverty social policies work and why. Learn more about our work.
J-PAL affiliates Phil Oreopoulos and Tom Kane, along with Britt Neuhaus of the Overdeck Family Foundation, argue that education leaders must commit to rigorous evaluation of edtech products before scaling up.
This year’s Health Care Delivery Initiative (HCDI) workshop brought together researchers and health care practitioners to strengthen their working knowledge of randomized evaluations and lay a foundation for developing strong research partnerships.
Rapidly rising health care costs in the United States have generated interest in identifying effective ways to improve the quality of care delivery and reduce waste within the health care system. In this ongoing study, researchers are evaluating the impact of a care management program that provides medical and social assistance to individuals with complex needs who incur high health care costs.
Summer youth employment programs that provided minimum wage summer jobs to mainly disadvantaged youth in New York City and Chicago reduced arrests for violent crimes, incarceration, and premature deaths.
