The Center for Policy Research (CPR) conducts interdisciplinary research and related activities in social sciences and public policy, including aging and health studies, education finance and policy, public finance, social welfare, poverty, and income security, urban and regional studies, and econometrics methodology. Faculty work on a variety of research grants related to public policy, which involve graduate students as assistants and consult with government agencies and other institutions concerned with the issues they are studying;The Maxwell Economics program is a high-quality undergraduate program within which we have two alternative tracks, BA and BS. In both tracks we provide a strong foundation in micro- and macroeconomics through our introductory and intermediate courses, which is followed by more specialized courses or electives. Undergraduates can choose from a wide range of electives in International Economics, Labor Economics, Public Economics, Urban Economics, Health Economics, Development Economics and Econometrics. Members of our faculty are known nationally and internationally for their applied microeconomic research on issues of public policy relevance;The Maxwell School is a graduate school of social science with a unique multidisciplinary character that cuts across traditional departmental lines. At Maxwell, theory and practice are regarded with equal seriousness: the barriers that divide academic disciplines from one another and from the larger world of public life are routinely breached by the wide-ranging scholarly and educational activities of an outstanding faculty and an exceptionally cosmopolitan student body

Chris Parmeter is an Associate Professor of Economics at University of Miami and will present his study,
