Together with colleagues in the Department of Economics and at the Census Bureau, KATHARINE G. ABRAHAM is creating better measures of the changing structure of work that incorporate the information contained in administrative records derived from tax filings. This work is part of a broader research agenda focused on using administrative data to develop improved statistics to inform policymakers’ understanding of the labor market. In the spring of 2016, Abraham was appointed by President Obama to chair the Commission on Evidence-Based Policymaking, a bi-partisan body charged to recommend how federal administrative data can be better tapped for policy evaluation purposes.
