Services Research Innovations for Homeless Mentally III

The broad goal of this project is improve services research and intervention, particularly for people who are homeless and mentally ill, through the use of latent group-trajectory analytic approaches. As an R34 Exploratory Development project, the study has two specific purposes. One is to examine the utility of latent group-trajectory analysis for improving services research for people who are homeless and mentally ill. The other is to compare two techniques for such analyses to understand how each may be best used in the context of services research.

DHB: Decentralization and Local Public Goods: How Does Allocation of Decision-Making Authority Affect Provision?

Access to services such as sanitation, health care and education remains inadequate for much of the world's population. As much as 20 percent of the world's population lack safe drinking water and sanitation. The objective of this study is to determine under what conditions decentralization of decision-making authority improves access to services. The project focuses on safe drinking water, though the analysis applies to all services and more broadly to other types of organizations. Decentralization and its benefits have been popular topics in academic and policy literatures.

Migration and Child Health and Development: Effects and Mechanisms

Increasing globalization and urbanization worldwide have profoundly altered the state of the family in many societies. In particular, a sizeable fraction of children have experienced parental migration during the course of their childhoods, either accompanying their migrant parents (migrant children) or left behind by one or both parents (left-behind children). Migration represents a distinct form of family transition and one that likely has important effects on child health and development. It often brings considerable economic improvement through increased income or remittances.

Educational Pathways to Science and Other Careers for Academically Talented Women
