Panel: Making better decisions using data to enhance workforce development, neighborhood improvements, and school safety

SPPUA Director Matthias Ruth chaired a panel at the Association of Public Policy and Management (APPAM) annual research conference this month in Chicago, featuring research by SPPUA professors Alicia Sasser Modestino on impacts of summer youth employment programs on job-preparedness and crime and Dan O’Brien on the use of 311 call data for neighborhood infrastructure improvements.

Other panelists included Tim Reardon, from the Metropolitan Area Planning Council, speaking on the development of a new survey tool that investigates the effects of route, neighborhood, and school characteristics on walking to school, and Adam Eckerd, assistant professor at Indiana University-Purdue University in Indianapolis, on modeling gentrification and displacement.
