Systems perspectives on policy development and evaluation

Price for SRA members £75. Price for non-members £95

Public policies are about changing systems, but conventional approaches to their evaluation have largely ignored this insight. This conference brings together researchers and policymakers from a range of sectors and disciplines.  It will explore the value of systems thinking for understanding policy problems, finding policy solutions and evaluating them - with a particular focus on the implications of systems thinking for policy evaluation.  The event is aimed at both academic and non-academic participants, including research users and research commissioners.

SRA Evening Seminar – Mixed Mode Series: Estimating Welsh language prevalence via an online-only random probability survey

In 2017 ONS conducted a large experimental online test of a prototype transformed labour market questionnaire, which included harmonised Welsh language questions. Around 12,500 households in Wales were invited to take part in the survey online, with households having the option to complete the survey in Welsh.

This seminar presents a brief overview of the 'respondent centric' design principles used to develop the survey, before moving on to the experimental findings from the Welsh language questions included in this survey. Comparisons are made with findings from other relevant surveys and the last Census.

Speaker: Andrew Phelps, ONS, is the lead for the transformation of the Labour Force Survey
