NewsECONOMICS & SPPG WORKSHOP
Monday, March 12, 2018 • 10:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. • 315 Bloor Street West
The purpose of the workshop is to explore opportunities for studying the very long run impacts of early life circumstances including welfare receipt, schooling, and other social programs, on later-life outcomes by following individuals over time and across administrative datasets. In the field of economics, groundbreaking new studies have emerged as a result of linking individuals across census and other government records. For instance, new work has shown that the children of mothers who receive welfare go on to live longer lives, attain more years of schooling and earn higher wages in adulthood relative to the children of mothers who were just as poor but did not receive the benefit.
