    Poverty reduction, or poverty alleviation, is a set of measures, both economic and humanitarian, that are intended to permanently lift people out of poverty.. Measures, like those promoted by Henry George in his economics classic Progress and Poverty, are those that raise, or are intended to raise, ways of enabling the poor to create wealth for themselves as a means of ending poverty forever.   Though not intended as such, an article I recently published in the Journal of Urban History is, in many ways, a historical impact assessment of a s era anti-poverty program. The article considers the theory of “new careers,” its translation into federal Great Society policy and grantmaking, and its eventual implementation on the ground.

    Disability and deep poverty: The country’s disability programs are an important anti-poverty weapon. In evaluating their effectiveness, it is important to determine whether the low employment rates among program recipients reflects an underlying (low) capacity for employment, as opposed to the labor-supply effects of the programs themselves. Pfeiffer knew he could make a meaningful impact on poverty. After evaluating foundations and charities, wading through our national welfare programs and studying the expert’s reports, he strongly believes he could help others focus their thoughts and actions with more confidence and success.

Impact evaluation assesses the changes that can be attributed to a particular intervention, such as a project, program or policy, both the intended ones, as well as ideally the unintended ones. In contrast to outcome monitoring, which examines whether targets have been achieved, impact evaluation is structured to answer the question: how would outcomes such as participants' well-being have.
