We are building the Policy Impacts Library, a collaborative effort to track which policies have the greatest “bang for their buck.”
Each policy is analyzed using a metric known as the Marginal Value of Public Funds, or the MVPF. This methodology is a unified way to determine which policies do the most to improve social well-being.
Explore the Policies
Our goal is to help policymakers and practitioners better understand and compare the long-term costs and benefits of a wide range of policies by providing a standardized database of MVPF estimates.
The MVPF Explained
The MVPF methodology allows decision makers to compare the impacts of different types of policies and identify policies that have the highest returns on investment.
Our Motivation and Mission
Policy Impacts is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of government decision-making by promoting standardization in policy analysis.
