Our recent research covers topics including the impact of fathers on women's occupational choices; the expansion of Medicare prescription drug coverage; the relationship between temperature and agricultural productivity; the effect of expanding publicly provided family planning services to low-income women; and the causes and consequences of the recent expansion in disability rolls in the US. Many students and faculty in these fields benefit from the resources of the Maryland Population Research Center (MPRC), a multidisciplinary center organized by the Departments of Economics, Sociology and Demography, dedicated to economic demography and other population-related research.
