Software platform for Automated Economic Analysis

Slide 1

Почему ADePT? Каждый год Всемирный Банк издает: 10-15 отчетов с оценками бедности 5-10 работ с анализом рынка труда 10 отчетов по системе образования и здравоохранения Работы по анализу гендерных проблем Анализ здоровья и развития детей Оценки эффективности систем социальной защиты. Отчеты по разным странам или по одной стране за несколько лет обычно основаны на аналогичных наборах аналитических результатов (таблиц и графиков) Значительные ресурсы затрачиваются на расчет этих стандартных результатов для каждого отчета. ADePT позволяет автоматизировать эту работу.

Slide 2

Автоматизированный экономический анализ Значительное ускорение производства основных аналитических результатов Высвобождение ресурсов для более глубоких и интересных исследований. Возможность предоставления новых методов анализа широкой аудитории специалистов Минимизация человеческих ошибок Создание стандартных, сравнимых результатов Минимальное время требуемое для обучения

ADePT: From data to report

Slide 4

Бесплатная программа доступная любому пользователю. Работает в наборами данных на в формате Stata или SPSS. Использует вычислительное ядро Stata Минимальные требования к пользователям по подготовке данных Широкая диагностика возможных проблем с данными. ADePT это инструмент для симуляций и анализа допущений Простой и понятный интерфейс пользователя. Программа протестирована на данных по 60 странам Пользователями ADePT являются исследователи из университетов, НКО, правительства, и think tanks. ADePT V4.1

Slide 5

ADePT Applications Data cleaning on early stages of data preparation. Clearly-documented, unambiguous algorithms – allow easy and fast replication of the results at any point. Introduce new, complex methods of economic analysis to policy practitioners around the world. Quality control for every output produced by the Bank – compare your results with error-free results of ADePT. Inter-year and inter-country comparability – possibility for cross-country analysis. Possibility of using internet data resources for the analysis (PPP) and result comparison.

Slide 6

ADePT Localization First launch in Indonesia. ADePT Indonesia – interface and output translated to Bahasa Indonesian. Allows distributing ADePT in the regional (kabupatan) offices where the knowledge of English could be an issue. Current version of ADePT is translated to: Bahasa Indonesian, Russian, Spanish, Bulgarian, Georgian Translations on French, Portuguese, Nepali, and Romanian are under way Localized versions of ADePT reduce the requirements on users and simplify training in the program.

Slide 7

ADePT Books We are working on series of books to accompany modules of ADePT Books have similar structure: Introduction: Why this analysis is important, what are the policy implications Main theoretical concepts used in the analysis: (FGT, GE, etc.) Detailed explanation for every table or graph in the output Software user guide for a particular module and for ADePT in general Poverty Analysis with ADePT – James Foster Analysis of Health Equity and Health Financing – Adam Wagstaff Who benefits from social protection and private transfers? User manual for ADePT SP – WB SP team

Slide 8

ADePT for Teaching Very successfully used ADePT for training. We developed courses that combine introduction to theoretical concepts with practical applications based on ADePT. Reduces skills requirements for the participants Localized versions of ADePT reduce language requirements Allows participants to work with their own data Much better understanding of the theoretical concepts, and better involvement in data analysis compared to using data from some unknown country.

Slide 9

ADePT Surveys Obtain rich set of results by including 3-5 new questions into the standard household surveys. Allow client countries to produce reports in the areas where they previously had no expertise. Improve the status of statistical agencies in the countries. Possibility to design a concise survey for 8 modules of ADePT – generate the analytical output never produced before in most countries. Our website contains the list of variables required for all currently-released modules.

Slide 10

ADePT Solutions: ADePT offers users a solution of a particular problem. Modules of ADePT produce sets of predefined analytical results (tables, graphs) sufficient to give an answer to a particular question. Combination of software tools and the substantive contributions from the leading experts in a field. Martin Ravallion (WB) : Poverty Adam Wagstaff (WB) : Health Harold Alderman (WB) : Nutrition Two main directions of ADePT: Assessments of the current situation Projections and simulations

Slide 11

ADePT Poverty: Released – June 2007 ADePT Labor: Released – November 2007 ADePT Gender: Released – November 2008 ADePT Social Protection: Released – June 2009 ADePT Education: Released – September 2009 ADePT Health: Released – December 2009 ADePT Inequality: Released – Spring 2010 ADePT Targeting: Planned Release – Summer 2011 ADePT PLINES: Development stage ADePT Crisis: Development stage ADePT Nutrition: Development stage ADePT MAPS: Released – November 2008 ADePT : The roadmap

Slide 12

ADePT ROI Costs: Zero monetary cost – ADePT is free. Minimal cost in terms of training Localized versions of ADePT lower this cost even more. No change in the standard production function for analytical results. Revenues: Saves at least several weeks of consultant/staff time per module + $000’s of dollars Allows much faster delivery of the reports ~ timely policies, better relations with a client.

Slide 13

ADePT Answers ADePT is not a dataset – it is a program to process data. We do not collect or provide data. NO, we do not plan to release a MAC version of ADePT YES, data preparation is important – if you put garbage into ADePT you will get organized garbage out. NO, we are not afraid that users will produce output without understanding of how to interpret the results. We write books for that.
