This paper discusses differences in the practice, conduct and reporting of impact evaluation studies by economists and epidemiologists.  Recognizing and defining the boundaries in these disciplines’ differences, and the missed opportunities for collaborative research, is an important conversation for the Centre of Excellence in Impact Evaluation and Learning (CEDIL) and its goal to promote interdisciplinary research to strengthen evaluation evidence in international development.
