The project is composed of two subprojects on labor economics. The first is an investigation of the relationship between demographic change, labor demand and the structure of relative wages. The second is an empirical investigation of the relationship between cyclical fluctuations in labor market conditions and persistent changes in the poverty rate.
The graduate assistant will need skills in labor economics and econometrics at the level of those taught in doctoral level courses. Experience and skill in using large complex datasets is required. Experience in programming using the Stata software package is also required.
