We use adaptations made within a household during adversities to understand how gender inequality in time use is produced and reinforced. Using three waves of the Young Lives Panel Survey (2009, 2013, and 2016), we [Read More…]

We approach this question by leveraging internationally harmonised microdata with 1.5 million individuals from 6 transition and developing countries and 15 OECD economies spanning from 1995 to 2016 and employ counterfactual decomposition techniques which allow [Read More…]

We developed a program theory explaining how implementation of a complex intervention occurs in LTC settings— examining mechanisms of impact, effects of context on implementation, and implementation outcomes such as fidelity. Research Design and [Read More…]
