Moderne Evaluationsmethoden auf der Basis ökonometrischer Verfahren und randomisierter Feldexperimente machen es für immer mehr Politikbereiche möglich, die Wirksamkeit wirtschaftspolitischer Maßnahmen zu überprüfen. Gleichwohl sind diese Methoden in der deutschen Evaluationspraxis nicht der Standard. Andere Länder sind Deutschland in dieser Hinsicht voraus. Gerade vor dem Hintergrund knapper öffentlicher Mittel ist eine Verbesserung der Evaluationspraxis dringend geboten, um die Mittelverwendung auf solche Maßnahmen fokussieren zu können, deren Wirksamkeit nachgewiesen ist. In diesem Beitrag werden institutionelle Voraussetzungen für methodisch valide Wirkungsanalysen diskutiert und mögliche Schritte hin zu einer stärker evidenzbasierten Wirtschaftspolitik in Deutschland vorgeschlagen.
