"HUD has completed the ninth in a series of reports designed to help Congress make informed policy decisions regarding housing assistance. This report is based on information from the 2003 American Housing Survey, which was sponsored by HUD and conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, and is augmented by data from the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP). Households falling into a "worst case need" classification consist of unassisted renters with very low incomes (under 50 percent of area median income) who either pay over half of their income for housing, or live in severely substandard housing. "Affordable Housing Needs: A Report to Congress on the Significant Need for Housing" reports the extent of worst case need and describes the population who experiences this level of need. The results are placed in historical perspective and geographical context, thus identifying trends and locating concentrations of worst case need. The report also examines the duration of severe rent burdens on households and the relationship between availability of affordable rental housing and worst case need. In addition, the report compares its estimates and interpretations with those emanating from other research, carefully evaluating the effect of differing methodologies on findings and conclusions."

Cornell Higher Education Research Institute (CHERI) [Ithaca, New York]: "Program Design and Student Outcomes in Graduate Education," by Jeffrey Groen, George Jakubson, Ronald Ehrenberg, Scott Condie, and Albert Yung-Hsu Liu (WP 86, December 2005, .pdf format, 34p.).

Abstract:

Doctoral programs in the humanities and related social sciences are characterized by high attrition and long time-to-degree. In response to these long-standing problems, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation launched the Graduate Education Initiative (GEI) to improve the structure and organization of PhD programs, and in turn reduce attrition and shorten time-to-degree. Over a 10-year period starting in 1991, the Foundation provided a total of $80 million to 51 departments at 10 major research universities. This paper estimates the impact of the GEI on attrition rates and time-to-degree. Our analysis is based on a competing-risk duration model and student-level data spanning the start of the GEI, including data on students at a set of control departments. We estimate that, on average, the GEI had modest impacts on student outcomes in the expected directions: reducing attrition rates, reducing time-to-degree, and increasing completion rates. The overall impacts of the GEI appear to have been driven in part by reductions in cohort size, increases in financial aid, and increases in student quality.

Princeton University Research Program in Development Studies and Center for Health and Wellbeing: "Health and wellbeing in Udaipur and South Africa," by Anne Case and Angus Deaton (un-numbered working paper, January 2006, .pdf format, 47p.).

Abstract:

This paper presents a descriptive account of health and economic status in India and South Africa--countries in very different positions in the international hierarchy of life expectancy and income. The paper emphasizes the lack of any simple and reliable relationship between health and wealth between and within our sites in rural Rajasthan, in a shack township outside of Cape Town, and in a rural South African site that, until 1994, was part of a Bantustan. Income levels across our sites are roughly in the ratio of 4:2:1, with urban South Africa richest and rural Rajasthan poorest, while ownership of durable goods, often used as a short-cut measure or check of living standards, are in the ratio of 3:2:1. These differences in economic status are reflected in respondents' own reports of financial status. People know that they are poor, but appear to adapt their expectations to local conditions, at least to some extent. The South Africans are taller and heavier than the Indians--although their children are no taller at the same age. South African self-assessed physical and mental health is no better, and South Africans are more likely to report that they have to miss meals for lack of money. In spite of differences in incomes across the three sites, South Africans and Indians report a very similar list of symptoms of ill-health. Although they have much lower incomes, urban women in South Africa have fully caught up with black American women in the prevalence of obesity, and are catching up in terms of hypertension. These women have the misfortune to be experiencing many of the diseases of affluence without experiencing affluence itself.
