Social impact of technology

Technological development has profound impacts on our lives. Just Economics are experts in the measurement of the social impacts of technology and have a good understanding of the challenges of doing evaluation in this area. We have also carried out several literature reviews, including on the impact of the internet on social isolation and loneliness. Current projects include a data synthesis and review of evaluation options for technology-enabled care on behalf of the Scottish Government.
