Please join us at our one-day research conference, “Evaluating the lasting, economic effects of the War on Poverty,” on Friday, December 14th, 9-5, at 6050 ISR-Thompson (426 Thompson St).

As we approach the 55th anniversary of the War on Poverty, this conference program will feature new research using the restricted linked Census-NUMIDENT data regarding the lasting human capital and productivity effects of Head Start, Food Stamps, Community Health Centers, and family planning programs. Keynote speaker, Hilary Hoynes, will present “Is the Social Safety Net a Long-Term Investment? Large-Scale Evidence from the Food Stamps Program” at 1:10pm. The conference is generously supported by the Laura and John Arnold Foundation, the Institute of Social Research, the Population Studies Center, and the economic history and labor economics seminars.
