Welcome to the Research Program in Development Studies

The Research Program in Development Studies is a thirty year old program focused on issues germane to development.  In recent years, our research  has been centered in economics, particularly in microeconomic foundations of development.  Current research interests of our group include the measurement of poverty; household dynamics and individuals' outcomes; the relationship between health and economic development; linkages between income, income inequality and health status; the impact of AIDS on individuals and households in sub-Saharan Africa; global well-being; and schooling, school quality and returns to education.  During the academic year we hold weekly seminars on Wednesdays from 12:15 - 1:30 p.m.
