HDRO Conference Room
17 June 2010
Time: 12.30 p.m. - 2.00 p.m.
For the last three years a team of researchers in the Development Economics Research Group of the World Bank has been developing a software platform for automated economic analysis, ADePT. ADePT is a stand-alone program that includes seven modules: Poverty, Social Protection, Labor, Gender, Health, Education, and Inequality. Each module of ADePT generates a set of about 50 print-ready tables and graphs for different areas of economic analysis. The rich functionality of the software will be demonstrated including how to create analytical reports; simulate the impact of different policies; check the quality of the data; and use ADePT in trainings. The experience of rolling out ADePT in Indonesia will also be shared.
