October 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Faculty Fellow Jeremy Moulton will present as part of the Carolina Population Center’s 2023-2024 Interdisciplinary Research Seminar Series.
Dr. Moulton is an Associate Professor in the Department of Public Policy at UNC. He earned his PhD in Economics from the University of California-Davis in 2011. Dr. Moulton is an applied microeconomist with research interests in aging, intergenerational transfers, housing, labor, self-employment, and health. Much of his work has used ‘natural experiments’ such as changes in program eligibility rules or policies to identify causal effects of demographic, health and labor outcomes. For instance, he has investigated the Earned Income Tax Credit, Social Security, Medicare Part-D, property tax exemptions, and the World War II G.I. Bill, using several different empirical methods: difference in differences, fixed effects, and regression discontinuity. Much of his research is focused on better understanding public policy’s impact on older populations and how these policies affect their family and household members.
