DIME Analytics creates tools that improve the quality of impact evaluation research for all. We take advantage of the concentration and scale of research at DIME to develop and test solutions to ensure the credibility and quality, and to make public training and tools available to the larger community of development researchers who might not have the same capabilities. The team offers a variety of services for high-quality, reproducible research to all World Bank staff. All of our tools and resources are open-source and open-access, and our virtual courses are open to the global community of development researchers. 

We take advantage of the scope and scale of DIME research to develop and test econometric and technical solutions and develop public tools.
