The Effects of Federal Adoption Incentive Awards for Older Children on Adoptions from U.S. Foster Care | JPAM Featured Article

When children in foster care cannot be reunified with their parents, adoption is considered a better option for permanent placement over long-term foster care. The federal Adoption Incentives program was established in 1997 to provide annual performance bonuses to states for increases in adoptions from U.S. foster care. This paper uses changes to the Adoption Incentives program in 2003 and 2008 to analyze states’ responses to the federal performance bonuses.

Local and State Minimum Wage Laws

Dec 16, 2014 02:00 PM

A wave of states and cities have recently passed laws raising their local minimum wage requirement above the federal minimum wage of $7.25. Earlier this year, my home city of Seattle passed a new law raising our minimum wage to $15 per hour by 2017, and San Francisco voters this month likewise approved a ballot measure to raise the city’s minimum wage to $15 by 2018. Many commentators were surprised that voters in traditionally “red” states passed minimum wage increases.

Short-Sighted Challenges to Evidence-Based Policy

Dec 11, 2014 03:30 PM

Something revolutionary is happening: Evidence-based policy is taking hold in Washington. As described in two new books – "Moneyball for Government" and "Show Me the Evidence" – the Obama administration has made a series of strategic moves to increase the use of evidence by federal agencies and state and local programs. In other words, these programs are being assessed to see if they actually work – not a common occurrence inside the Beltway.

Call for Proposals: Spring Conference 2015

Dec 08, 2014 03:00 PM

The goal of the conference is to begin a dialogue among academic researchers; policymakers, who create policy; and practitioners, who implement policy. The conversation aims to advance the exchange of knowledge and information among these sectors, creating better informed policy deliberations. APPAM will use this conference to determine if the Association can play a role in this exchange, and if so, what that may entail.

Activists Wield Search Data to Challenge and Change Police Policy

Rather than relying on demonstrations to force change, a coalition of ministers, lawyers and community and political activists turned to numbers. They used an analysis of state data from 2002 to 2013 that showed that the Durham police searched black male motorists at more than twice the rate of white males during stops. Drugs and other illicit materials were found no more often on blacks.
