"To Support Research And Training In Demography And Economics"
Eva Mueller had a long and productive career as a faculty member in the Department of Economics and the Population Studies Center. Early in her career she contributed significantly to the study of consumer behavior in the United States and later turned to issues of economic demography in low income countries. Eva died in November 2006, with her estate providing funding for the Eva L. Mueller New Directions in Economics and Demography Fund.
The Fund was established to support research and training in demography and economics, especially projects focusing on low income countries and projects dealing with the socioeconomic position of women and investments in children's health and human capital.
