Lessons about the Safety Net: Evidence from the Research Community

Lessons about the Safety Net: Evidence from the Research Community

This presentation by UC Davis economist Marianne Bitler describes the US social safety net and the great strides made in understanding our reformulated safety net in the last decade, driven by a variety of advances in availability of new data, new sources of variation, and creative research designs.

Panelists to discuss the topic include Martin Graff, UC Davis Center for Human Services; Frank Mecca, County Welfare Directors Association of California; and Michele Stillwell-Parvensky, Children’s Defense Fund–California.

This presentation was part of the UC Davis Poverty Research and Policy Summit at UC Center Sacramento on April 22, 2016. For more information about the event, visit http://poverty.ucdavis.edu/summit.
