Melvin Stephens, Estimating Program Benefits
a PSC Research Project
Investigators: Francisco I. Pedraza, Edward Norton
This project will address one core question: did immigration enforcement generate a "chilling effect" on social service use among Latinos during the Great Recession? We propose tracking the "chilling effect" at the individual level and apply multi-level analysis to evaluate the relative extent to which immigration policy enforcement has unintended eects on Latino utilization of safety net programs. Our proposal speaks directly to CPI's research groups A (social service use) and D (eects of immigration policy), but has implication for understanding Hispanic poverty, generational differences in social standing, social mobility and health.
