Niniejszy artyku³ prezentuje ideê badañ ewaluacyjnych oraz dokonuje przegl¹du badañ mierz¹cych wp³yw przyczynowo-skutkowy reform polityki rodzinnej na dzietnoœæ. W œwietle doœwiadczeñ miêdzynarodowych pozytywny wp³yw na dzietnoœæ mog¹ mieæ: poprawa dostêpnoœci us³ug opiekuñczych dla dzieci, system premiowania szybkiego przejœcia do drugiego dziecka poprzez odpowiedni¹ konstrukcjê zasi³ków wychowawczych czy te¿ system opodatkowania i zasi³ków rodzinnych. Nale¿y jednak pamiêtaæ, ¿e instrumenty polityki rodzinnej, które okaza³y siê skuteczne w innych krajach Europy, niekoniecznie musz¹ przynieœæ dok³adnie takie same efekty w Polsce. Dlatego wa¿ne jest, by wype³niæ lukê w stanie wiedzy na temat wp³ywu poszczególnych komponentów polityki rodzinnej na poziom dzietnoœci w Polsce, korzystaj¹c z metodologii badañ ewaluacyjnych. W przeciwnym wypadku kolejne reformy bêd¹ opieraæ siê na przyjêtych ad hoc przes³ankach, a nie na rzetelnej wiedzy p³yn¹cej z badañ.
