Rational policy analysis:  Structure, implementation, & impact
Structure of the policy
­What does the policy mandate, prohibit, or allow?
­Who is eligible (& ineligible) to be impacted by the policy?
Implementation of the policy
­How is the policy administered & enforced on individual & system levels (bureaucracy, sanctions, penalties)?
Evidence & impact
­What variations are evident in implementation or interpretation of the policy?  What seems to account for these variations?
­What have been the outcomes of the policy relative to its expressed objectives?
­Have there been additional outcomes (sometimes called “unintended”)?  In this section, consider especially differential impacts on marginalized groups.
