A New Poverty Measure for California (David B. Grusky)

The datasets currently used to measure poverty in California are too small to calculate statistics at the neighborhood level and to monitor key disparities between racial, ethnic, and other groups. The Stanford Center on Poverty and Inequality is using linked population-level datasets (i.e., linked Census and tax data) to build a second-generation poverty measure that can be used to provide high-resolution measurement and to assess the effects of California’s safety net policies on poverty and disparities in poverty. Qualifications: We are seeking a research assistant who is skilled in quantitative analysis and can program in R and Stata. Application review for this position will begin on March 1, 2023. The position will remain open until filled.
