Every outcome evaluation of any intervention requires the evaluator to answer two basic questions:
1.Has the intervention achieved the outcomes which it is aiming to achieve?
2.To what extent is this change due to the intervention vs other factors?
The first question is really practical – identify the outcomes of interest and the most appropriate way of measuring those outcomes.
The second is more challenging. How do you know that changes/improvements were due to the program or policy?

Following my prior post, may I further ask about the conditions for causal inferences? Could you please kindly give me a clue, take an example of late-life depression and sleep disturbance.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
