A Fair and Accurate Census is at Risk - #2018APPAM Super Session

Dr. William O’Hare warmly welcomed the crowd and panelist and quickly dove into the importance of the 2020 Census. He described the 4p’s of the United States Congress in relation to importance of the census. Dr. O’Hare went on to stress the importance of not undercounting demographic groups such as young children 0-4 years old, which happened in 2010. Imagine planning a pre-school for 15 young children when you must cater to 45; this is a recipe for failure to our future generations

Our Conference Theme Emphasizes the Need to Use Research and Evidence at Every Stage of the Policy Process | APPAM Leadership Blog Series

Oct 18, 2018 01:45 PM

For me, fall is a refreshing season of new beginnings. Our member universities are back in full swing, students are launching into their research for the academic year, and the fall conference is just around the corner. I am proud of our conference theme this year, Evidence for Action: Encouraging Innovation and Improvement. The programming emphasizes the need to use research and evidence at every stage of the policy process.

What is the Role Advocacy Should Play in APPAM’s Activities? | APPAM Leadership Blog Series

Sep 24, 2018 05:39 PM

What is the role advocacy should play in APPAM’s activities? The arguments largely fall into two camps: APPAM shouldn’t engage in advocacy activities because our members get those needs met elsewhere and wading into specific issues is sure to alienate some; APPAM should engage in advocacy activities since members’ research depends on funding and the outcomes impact policy and the policy-making process. APPAM doesn’t advocate or provide information its members could use to advocate. Should we?

Build Community and Confidence for Early-Career Scholars through the 40 for 40 Fellowship

Aug 13, 2018 06:23 PM

The 40 for 40 Fellowship is an opportunity for young researchers, like me, to have a platform to use their voice and to gain the support of a community. You are building confidence not only in the individual but are helping to ensure that the field remains diverse. Think about your perspectives on policy and what made you passionate about it. Representation matters and you have the chance through the 40 for 40 Fellowship to provide another researcher the opportunity to share their story.

APPAM is the Natural Place to Encourage New Scholars in our Field | APPAM Leadership Blog Series

Aug 02, 2018 07:07 PM

I can still remember my first APPAM presentation in 1993 like it was yesterday. It was at 8 am on a Friday and all six of the panel members were from the West Coast, so we were bleary-eyed and tired. On my panel was a former university system provost, two leading scholars on higher ed governance, the President and CEO of the leading national nonprofit, a senior economist from a renowned think tank, and me—a graduate student at the RAND Graduate School. What an amazing opportunity!

The 2018 International Conference Was Truly Focused on the Theme and Location

Jul 31, 2018 02:08 PM

The conference was filled with great papers on vulnerable populations, new initiatives in cities, and sustainable development. I even chaired a session on public management and government sustainability. It was truly focused on the theme of Public Policy for Sustainable Metropolitan Development, with almost half of all papers mentioning “city” or “urban” or “metropolitan” in their titles.

Government Data is a National Treasure | APPAM Leadership Blog Series

Jun 07, 2018 05:42 PM

APPAM has always supported government data. Having worked for 25 years in the Federal Statistical System, I have seen first-hand the importance of high quality data and the direct influence it has on government policy. And this is only possible because of sufficient funding, leadership, and dedicated staff.

Leaning On and Learning From Our Sister Associations | APPAM Leadership Blog Series

May 14, 2018 07:42 PM

As an applied microeconomist who studies the causes and consequences of a range of public policies, I have always felt like APPAM is my primary intellectual home. Part of this fondness goes back to my first experiences at the Fall Research Conferences in the early 2000's. A core group of scholars studying policy issues related to sexual minorities would organize a research session each year. Relative to those first few years of mostly empty rooms, we have come a long way.

Duke/APPAM Opioid Forum Focused on Effective Partnerships and Data

May 07, 2018 01:42 PM

Opioid misuse is a major epidemic across the nation. Local and state officials bear the burden of responses to the epidemic and need assistance coordinating research and resources. The Institutional Member Forum, held on on May 1, 2018, and hosted by Duke Policy Bridge at the Sanford School of Public Policy and APPAM, connected the worlds of research and policy across this escalating public health epidemic.
