Research Fellow, American Institute for Economic Research.

Ph.D., Duke University

Dr. Coate's current research analyzes the links between family relationships, internal migration decisions and labor market outcomes in the United States. In particular, much of his research is focused on the flows of resources between parents and adult children and how these flows vary by educational attainment and other characteristics of each generation. He has previously studied other topics related to sports economics and the economics of education.
