Summary In 2010, the authors embarked on a study evaluating the impact of an area-based regeneration intervention on health inequalities in England. The policy initiative in question was called New Deal for Communities - a major programme implemented in 39 disadvantaged neighbourhoods over 10 years from 1999/2000 to 2010/2011. Due to methodological and practical challenges, it was not possible to use an experimental design to assess impacts. Alternatively, they deployed methods that allowed them to evaluate the initiative as a 'natural policy experiment' using innovative approaches to constructing 'comparators'. This case study explains what natural policy experiments are and why there is growing interest in these among public health researchers.
