The research into the efficacy of get-out-the-vote interventions by Professor Alan Gerber and former Yale professor Donald Green is discussed on The Book, Etal. section of the online journal Science in Andrew Leigh’s new publication “Randomistas: How Radical Researchers Are Changing Our World”.
Excerpt: “Social scientists once restricted their research to carefully controlled laboratory experiments. Over the past 25 years, however, they have increasingly made use of field experiments. Insights gained have spanned nearly every imaginable segment of our society, lending tests of theory, advice to policymakers, and guidance to nonprofit and for-profit firms alike.”
