Is the EMA a good thing?  I have plenty of anecdotal evidence but as a friend recently accused the government of ‘hating statistics’ and I laughed along with him I guess that would be unfair.  So lucky for me the IFS has just published an analysis .

So  yes, it is – even if the only purpose is to encourage participation rates,  and ignoring the getter attendance, grades etc.

I’ve no doubt that my most regular commenter will be ready to jump on this post.  That’s fine with me, but I’m not going to argue with you about this one – write to the IFS if you want…
