He is a Research Associate of the National Bureau of Economic Research, an Affiliate of the Institute for Research on Poverty at the University of Wisconsin, and an Affiliate of CESifo. Figlio conducts research on a wide range of education and health policy issues from school accountability and standards to welfare policy and policy design.

He is also leading a National Science Foundation-sponsored national network to facilitate the use of matched administrative datasets to inform and evaluate education policy. He has advised numerous state and federal agencies, as well as the governments of nearly two dozen countries, on education, health, and social policy questions.

Obituary for former Advisory Board member of The Journal of Human Resources

Glen G. Cain

Glen G. Cain served as Editor of The Journal of Human Resources from 1974-76 and was on the Advisory board from 1998-2014. An excerpt of his obituary is below, or see the full obituary.

 

After graduating from Lake Forest, Glen went to the University of California-Berkeley where he earned a master's degree in industrial relations in 1957. Then it was back to the Midwest where Glen and Ria got married and Glen began working at the Federal Reserve in downtown Chicago. But Glen decided he wanted a bigger challenge. He applied and was accepted to the University of Chicago where he earned his Ph.D. in economics in 1963, studying under Milton Friedman and other notable economists, some of whom became Nobel Prize winners. Upon graduation, Glen was offered a tenure-track position at the University of Wisconsin and moved to Madison with his wife and young son. The family would grow to three children with the addition of two daughters.

 

Glen left an important legacy in his chosen field. His dissertation, published in 1966, was titled Married Women in the Labor Force and described one of the most important trends in the United States economy in the post-World War II period. Glen worked closely with the UW's Institute for Research on Poverty and was a prolific writer, authoring articles, papers and chapters in books on labor economics. Some of his professional and volunteer affiliations included service on the National Commission on Employment and Unemployment Statistics; the advisory panel to the U.S. Civil Rights Commission; the board of directors of the National Bureau of Economic Research; and on Lake Forest College's board of trustees. Glen was also on the Advisory Board of The Journal of Human Resources. Glen retired from the UW in 1995, although he remained active in his research and continued to work closely with the UW graduate students he mentored and cared so much about in the economics program.

Study: Subsidies Change Incentives for Adoption of Foster Children

The structure of a federal program that provides monthly subsidies to promote the adoptions of special needs children in foster care may actually be delaying some adoptions, according to a new study by University of Notre Dame economist Kasey Buckles.

 

Forthcoming in The Journal of Human Resources, Buckles’ study shows that the number of adoptions increases when children become eligible for an adoption subsidy, and most of the increase is from adoptions by foster parents. However, the age of subsidy eligibility for children varies by state since states can choose how they define a special needs child. As a result, children in some states become subsidy eligible at age 2, while others are not eligible until age 12. Click here for more information.
