The Philippines Socioeconomic Panel Survey (PSPS)

Beyond the Snapshot
Join us in welcoming Dean Karlan and Chris Udry, lead academic researchers for the PSPS, to share insights on their motivation behind starting this twenty-year evidence-generation initiative and how it could be used for the wider public.
