Long-Term Effects of Anti-Poverty Policies That Increase Income From Work

Grant Year: 2016

David Neumark will compare the long-term effects of competing policy options designed to alleviate poverty and move people toward self-sufficiency. He will use data from the Panel Survey of Income Dynamics and the Current Population Survey to examine whether increases in the minimum wage or the Earned Income Tax Credit have more effective long-term impacts on employment and earnings. The project’s findings will appear in a series of papers.
