Anne Case and Angus Deaton have been named to Prospect Magazine's 2019 list of "World's Top 50 Thinkers". Case and Deaton jointly received this award for their work in U.S. mortality data. Case and Deaton’s landmark 2015 study was the first to detect the rise in mortality rates from “deaths of despair” — drugs, alcohol and suicide — among middle-aged white Americans.
