Replication, replication

A colleague forwarded me this RFP specifically for replication of controversial impact evaluations. It includes a recent journal club article (by other IHME colleagues) on the candidate study list. Cool!

I’ve also made it really easy for someone to replicate the results in one recent paper I was involved in, on hepatitis C virus seroprevalence. Well, easy if you manage to get dismod installed… making that really easy is still on my to-do list.
