38TH ANNUAL FALL RESEARCH CONFERENCE

November 3 - 5, 2016 Washington Hilton Washington, D.C.

Letter from the President-Elect

Dear Fellow Fall Conference Attendees: Welcome to Washington, D.C. and the 2016 APPAM Fall Research Conference! This year’s Fall Research Conference theme, “The Role of Research in Making Government More Effective,” ties in closely with APPAM's mission to improve public policy and management by fostering excellence in research, analysis, and education. The annual Fall Research Conference is one of our premiere forums for bringing our research findings to the attention of policy makers and practitioners and engaging with them in discussions about how our results can be used to improve government policy and practice. With an important set of elections around the corner, we are more keenly aware than ever of how important it is to facilitate these types of interactions and exchanges and to work toward developing ongoing relationships between researchers and those in a position to apply research evidence to improve public policymaking and management. We received over 2,100 submissions for the conference this year and will feature over 1,000 papers on the program. Having had the opportunity this year to review all submissions—both those that made it to the program and those that we did not have space for—I have a fuller appreciation for the outstanding individuals and research that we are attracting to the conference, and I want to convey my sincere appreciation to all who took the time to submit their best work to the conference. In total, the 2016 Fall Research Conference will offer 260 concurrent sessions over the three days of the conference. In addition to the cutting-edge panels, this year’s program also features some superb events, including an extraordinary opening lunch symposium on “The 2016 Presidential Election and the Changing Electorate and Electoral Participation,” two symposia on education and welfare reform with esteemed participants, and two roundtables organized in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the University of Wisconsin Institute for Research on Poverty. I recommend coming to the conference as early as possible so as not to miss these exciting events! We are also experimenting this year with a new “lightning roundtable” that will present “Leading Examples of Researcher/Practitioner Partnerships that are Advancing Evidence-Based Policy”—this is also not to be missed. Other program highlights include the New Member and First Time Attendee Reception on Wednesday afternoon, the Welcome Reception on Thursday evening, the Rossi Award breakfast on Friday morning, the Kershaw Award lecture and Presidential Address from Ron Haskins on Friday afternoon, the Saturday morning caucuses, and also new this year, a Closing Reception co-sponsored by the Center for Equitable Growth. I also want to take this opportunity to convey my sincerest appreciation to our Program Committee, especially the section chairs, who worked so hard to build our conference program, as well as my deep gratitude to Tara Sheehan, APPAM’s Executive Director, Tristanne Staudt, APPAM’s Conferences and Education Manager, and Samantha Oliver, APPAM’s Meetings and Conferences Coordinator, who have worked tirelessly in organizing this outstanding conference event. Finally, thank you for attending this year’s conference and for bringing your knowledge, insights and enthusiasm for working together to make government more effective. On behalf of the APPAM Leadership and Staff, welcome to our Nation’s capital, and I hope that you thoroughly enjoy our event!

Carolyn Heinrich APPAM President-Elect

Paper Listings

Webcast

Session Types

Updated Information

Please note that the listing of papers for panels may not represent the order in which they will be presented. The order of presentation is determined by the presenters in coordination with the session chair.

Some APPAM special events will be available via webcast including:

Panel A panel is the most common type of session. It is paper dependent and includes three or four paper presenters, a chair, and one or two discussants. Each presenter is given a limited time to present their research, after which the discussant(s) offer insight, ask questions, and discuss shared elements of the papers. The chair keeps time, introduces presenters, and guides audience discussion.

The session data in the printed program is up to date as of October 3.

APPAM does not list the authors of papers in any particular order. They are listed in the order submitted by the paper submitter and the order does not necessarily indicate who will be presenting each paper. For up-to-date information who will present each paper, please check the mobile app. APPAM set up a searchable database of paper abstracts in the digital preliminary program. When provided by the author(s), full papers are listed as PDFs below the abstracts.

The 2016 Election and the Changing Electorate and Electoral Participation Thursday, November 3 11:30 am - 1:00 pm Is Equality of Educational Opportunity Improving? A Look at the Evidence 50 Years Following Coleman Thursday, November 3 4:40 pm - 5:55 pm See APPAM.org for more information.

Roundtable A roundtable is a discussion-based session featuring a moderator and up to five speakers. The topic is not paper dependent and the discussion between speakers is designed to encourage audience discussion and questions. Speakers are included based on their varying perspectives, backgrounds, and diversity of knowledge.

For real time information, check the conference mobile app. Presenters were given the option of uploading their slides and handouts to the mobile app; check there for digital versions. If you attend a session where the slides or handouts were not uploaded to the mobile app, encourage presenters to send their files to APPAM for upload after the conference, for ease of access.

Caucus A caucus is an informal discussion on a trending policy topic or data set. Each caucus is led by a moderator who will guide the attendees through discussion and answer questions. There is no presentation and the topic is not based around a specific paper or research project but may focus on a data set or government program. Symposium Three symposia will be held on Thursday, November 3. These events do not run against any other sessions or events. A symposium is similar to a roundtable in that it is not paper dependent, but rather centers around a single topic, with speakers discussing the topic from varying perspectives. Symposium themes are chosen by the President-elect for their timeliness and speakers are invited to share their opinions and viewpoints. Poster All poster sessions will be held in the Exhibit Hall. This year there will be about 230 poster presentations. A poster session consists of presenters presenting their research in poster format, discussing their work, and answering questions. A first, second, and third place winner will be selected from among the posters displayed each day.

Dedicated to learning what works to improve the well-being of low-income people

MDRC was created in 1974 to learn what works to improve the lives of low-income people. The driving force behind MDRC is a conviction that rigorous tests of social and education programs — along with reliable evidence, well communicated — can make an important difference in social policy and support the well-being of low-income Americans. We conduct quantitative and qualitative research to evaluate, develop, and strengthen programs for low-income populations in the following areas: • Promoting family well-being and children’s development • Improving public education • Raising academic achievement and persistence in college • Supporting low-wage workers and communities • Enhancing job prospects for people with barriers to employment • Helping vulnerable young people become independent adults • Reducing recidivism among former prisoners

PREPARING TOMORROW’S POLICYMAKERS Congratulations Associate Professor Abdul-Akeem Sadiq and Professor Doug Noonan were awarded a $201,772 National Science Foundation grant under the Infrastructure Management and Extreme Events Program. The project, “Enhancing Community Resilience to Floods: A Theoretical Framework of Community Participation in Federal Voluntary Programs,” has been funded for two years. The project combines the growing interest in disaster management and in voluntary policy tools generally. This award will provide the support needed to develop a novel theoretical framework of community participation in federal voluntary programs by integrating key insights from multiple disciplines such as political science, public administration, environmental economics, nonprofit management and sociology.

Assistant Professor Saba Siddiki is part of a three-person team of researchers who were selected for a $185,000 National Science Foundation grant under the Science of Science and Innovation Policy program. The project, “Toward the diffusion of sustainable technologies: The case of electric vehicles,” has been funded for two years. Siddiki, along with SPEA IU professors Sanya Carley and Sean Nicholson-Crotty, will examine the degree to which current policies, individually or in tandem, affect consumers’ willingness to purchase electric vehicles, and the degree to which these policies are driving technological adoption in the U.S. transportation sector.

Roundtable Behavioral Nudges: Cost-Effective Policy or Government Overreach? (EDU)

Location: Columbia 1 Moderator: James Kvaal, University of Michigan Speakers: Benjamin L. Castleman, University of Virginia; Alissa Fishbane, ideas42; Jay Greene, University of Arkansas; Andrew Kelly, American Enterprise Institute Description: Across various policy domains, while progress has been made in some areas (e.g. reducing the Black-White academic achievement gap in education), existing interventions have failed to remedy other long-standing inequalities. In education, achievement gaps between low- and high-income high school students are 40 percent wider today than they were a decade ago, and socioeconomic disparities in college completion between poor and affluent young adults have grown more pronounced over time (Bailey and Dynarski, 2012; Reardon, 2011).

Roundtable

Location: Oak Lawn Moderator: Jenni Owen, Duke University Speakers: Andrew Feldman, Brookings Institution; Ryan Martin, U.S. House Ways and Means Committee; Michele McLaughlin, Knowledge Alliance; Katherine Darke Schmitt, U.S. Department of Justice Description: APPAM will be meeting just days before a pivotal Presidential election for the evidence-based policymaking movement. Will the new President (and Congress) build on the work of the Bush and Obama Administrations in advancing the use of research evidence in policymaking? Are there success stories from last two Administrations that could inspire the new leadership to maintain the momentum? Cautionary tales that they could learn from? Join a roundtable of experts offering different perspectives on the federal scene for some informed advice-giving (and prognosticating)!

Roundtable Impacting Policy on the Ground: The Role of Community-Based Organizations on Policy Advocacy for Low-Income and Racial/Ethnic Minority Neighborhoods (EQ)

Location: Morgan Moderator: Keosha Partlow, Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science Speakers: Mario Chavez, St. John's Well Child and Family Center; Susan Gooden, Virginia Commonwealth University; Laura Muraida, Strategic Concepts in Organizing and Policy Education; Pete White, Los Angeles Community Action Network Description: A historical analysis of policy development, analysis, and management highlights key policies that have significantly impacted the quality of life for low-income and racial/ethnic minority populations. Policies such as Jim Crow, redlining, and racial covenants impacted the access to opportunity for low-income and racial/ethnic minority populations and widened the gap for economic opportunity.

Roundtable Improving Outcomes: The Role of 'Pay for Success' (PM)

Location: Holmead West Moderator: David Wilkinson, The White House Speakers: Megan Lizik, U.S. Department of Labor; Jennifer Stoff, Corporation for National and Community Service; Yennie Tse, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development; John Tambornino, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Description: Pay for Success (PFS) is an Obama Administration priority that explores new ways to drive innovation and scale evidence-based practices to improve social or environmental outcomes. The PFS model is designed to catalyze program innovation and improvement, act upon the best evidence and further build evidence regarding efficacy, drive results by focusing on impacts, and help target limited dollars and reduce financial risk to taxpayers or other stakeholders. Rigorous evaluation is a key pillar of PFS, and important flexibilities within the model also allow for rapid learning about the success of an intervention, and services can be adjusted in real-time.

Location: Holmead East Moderator: Rashida L. Welbeck, MDRC Speakers: Marybeth Gasman, University of Pennsylvania; Michelle Asha Cooper, Institute for Higher Education Policy; Antonio Henley, Johnson C. Smith University Description: College enrollment has increased in the United States over the past 40 years; however, college completion rates have declined, particularly among students enrolled in community colleges and open and broad access four-year colleges and universities. This trend is most pronounced among students of color, especially male students, specifically African American and Latino students. The race/ethnicity and gender college completion gap raises two main concerns: equity and economic growth.

Roundtable Challenges and Strategies for Integrated Analysis in Mixed Methods Policy Research (METH)

Location: Columbia 12 Moderator: Amy Castro Baker, University of Pennsylvania Speakers: Lisa Leroy and Anna Jefferson, Abt Associates; Stuart Robertson, QSR International; Carolyn Heinrich, Vanderbilt University Description: Mixed methods are becoming more prevalent in policy research but can present many challenges to successfully carry out. While mixed methods are espoused in policy research and evaluation, it is often the case that qualitative and quantitative components of a study are designed and data are collected, housed, and analyzed separately. The qualitative and quantitative processes occur in parallel rather than in an integrated way. Having observed this in their own and many other organizations, the presenters offer an interactive panel, including a case example, of how software is one strategy to support more integrated mixed methods analyses.

Roundtable Data in Crisis (METH)

Location: Columbia 11 Moderator: Jonathan Schwabish, Urban Institute Speakers: Martha Stinson, U.S. Census Bureau; Marianne Bitler, University of California, Irvine; David Johnson, University of Michigan; Bruce Meyer, University of Chicago Description: Household surveys, one of the main innovations in social science research of the last century, are threatened by declining accuracy and reliability. That decline may be due to a variety of factors, such as reduced cooperation of respondents, data privacy and security concerns, changes in how survey respondents are contacted and perhaps because there is some belief that collected data do not provide meaningful information. The decline in quality of these traditional data sets raises important ethical issues that all data creators—especially researchers and practitioners—and users must take seriously.

Roundtable State-University Partnerships: Generating Evidence to Support State Health Policymaking (HEALTH)

Location: Gunston East Moderator: Enrique Martinez-Vidal, AcademyHealth Speakers: Joel Cantor, Rutgers University; Julie Donohue, University of Pittsburgh; Cynthia Woodcock, University of Maryland, Baltimore County Description: Since the passage of the Affordable Care Act, states have become even more focused on efforts to improve health and healthcare. We know that policymakers tend to be higher users of research for decision making when they interact with the research process in the context of research-policy networks. State-University Partnerships support the important dialogue needed to generate timely and relevant evidence for state policymaking. This roundtable will provide examples of policy and data analyses; discuss how state policymakers have used the studies; highlight issues related to data collection, linkage, and analytic methodologies; and offer insights into the challenges, opportunities, and overall value of participating in such partnerships.

Participants will learn about the tools needed for writing grant proposals and the processses for developing ideas for funding, budgeting, and compliance.

Roundtable The Role of Analysis and Program Evaluation in Policy-Making (POL)

Location: Oak Lawn Moderator: Stuart Shapiro, Rutgers University Speakers: Angela M. Evans, University of Texas at Austin; Kathryn Newcomer, George Washington University; Jon Baron, Laura and John Arnold Foundation; Torey Silloway, The Pew Charitable Trusts Description: What do we know about the factors that determine the incorporation of good analysis into public policy decisions? Many of us teach program evaluation, policy analysis, economics, and decision theory, and we do so in the hope that our students will use these techniques (and other forms of analysis) to influence policy decisions. But the interface between those doing the analysis and those making the decisions is poorly understood. This roundtable will explore this interface and talk about when analysis makes a difference in policy-making . . . and when it doesn't.

11:30 am - 1:00 pm Symposium Lunch Symposium: The 2016 Presidential Election and the Changing Electorate and Electoral Participation Location: International Ballroom West Speakers: William Galston, Brookings Institution and Kay Hymowitz, Manhattan Institute Moderator: Henry Brady, University of California, Berkeley Description: This lunch symposium, featuring highly influential election analysts and commentators William Galston and Kay Hymowitz, will discuss the implications of political polarization and ways to promote greater civic participation among citizens as well as class, culture, and the changing electorate. Henry Brady, a distinguished scholar on electoral politics, will moderate the event. Tickets are required for this event and can be purchased through at the Onsite Registration Desk.

Policy makers are increasingly looking to systematic reviews to provide an objective and comprehensive assessment of the research findings on a particular topic. In this roundtable, speakers representing four different systematic reviews will discuss how their reviews present research findings for their particular decision-making audience, and the lessons their experiences offer on how to present research findings to support evidence-based decision-making.

Advancing policy through the best science of our day.

Social Impact, Down to a Science harris.uchicago.edu 70

At the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy, we know that positive social impact takes serious work. That’s why we fearlessly investigate the facts, working at the frontiers of data collection and analysis to address social problems like police misconduct, child lead poisoning, and achievement gaps for low-income students. The answers may not always be popular, but we don’t think policy is about feeling good. It’s about doing good.

This statement focuses on the p-value, a statistic that is too often misunderstood and misused in the research community. The ASA statement is designed to usher in a post p-value era to bring the full force of statistical analysis to producing scientific evidence. This roundtable will discuss the implications of this statement for generating evidence on program and policy effectiveness. The panelists include the executive director of the ASA and a set of researcher and practitioners who are users of evidence in making program and policy decisions.

Schedule / Friday November 4 10:15 am - 11:45 am

Roundtable Advancing the Power of Economic Evidence to Inform Investments in Children, Youth, and Families (CHILD)

Location: Fairchild East Moderator: Eugene Steurle, Urban Institute Speakers: Jeanne Brooks-Gunn, Columbia University; Lynn Karoly, RAND Corporation; Max Crowley, Pennsylvania State University; Margaret Kuklinski, University of Washington Description: Decision makers are often tasked with the responsibility to decide when, where, and how to invest in interventions that support children, youth, and families. Economic evidence is one type of evidence that, when used effectively, can better inform these investment decisions by helping decision makers determine not only “what works”, but “what works” within certain budget constraints. However, economic evidence is not always effectively produced or used to its highest potential. In this context, The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine commissioned an ad hoc consensus committee to study how to improve the use of economic evidence to inform policy and funding decisions on investments for children, youth, and families. This roundtable will discuss the recommendations of the Academies' report—in particular opportunities for research to make government more effective.

Roundtable Anti-Poverty Policy Innovations for the U.S.: Cash Transfers (POV)

Location: Georgetown West Moderator: Katherine Magnuson, University of Wisconsin—Madison Speakers: Jane Waldfogel, Columbia University; Maria Cancian, University of Wisconsin—Madison; Timothy Smeeding, Institute for Research on Poverty; Marianne Bitler, University of California, Irvine Description: This session is organized by the University of Wisconsin Institute for Research on Poverty in association with its 50th Anniversary. The discussion will draw from a set of policy proposals prepared for a forthcoming issue of the Russell Sage Foundationís Journal of the Social Sciences, focusing on innovative, potentially high-impact, specific policy proposals intended to reduce poverty or improve economic wellbeing in the short- and/or long-term. This roundtable specifically focuses on cash transfers.

Roundtable The Promise of Integrated Data Systems (METH)

Location: Columbia 11 Moderator: Laura Feeney, Massachusetts Institute of Technology Speakers: Kathy Stack, Laura and John Arnold Foundation; Amy O’Hara, U.S. Census Bureau; Dennis Culhane, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs; Dayanand Manoli, University of Texas at Austin Description: While administrative data are a promising resource, it can be challenging for researchers and evaluators to access these data, particularly if different records are held by different agencies. Across North America, a number of governments have developed integrated data systems to address these issues and to facilitate access to administrative data. This roundtable will focus on the promise of integrated data in facilitating research, evaluating programs, and developing plans.

Roundtable The Transition from Dependency to Adulthood: Evaluator and Program Partnerships to Build Evidence of Effective Interventions (CHILD)

Location: Fairchild West Moderator: Matthew Stagner, Mathematica Policy Research Speakers: John Martinez, MDRC; Jan C. DeCoursey, MEF Associates; Sarah Hurley, Youth Villages; Erika Van Buren, First Place for Youth Description: Using the context of programs designed to assist youth transitioning from the child welfare and juvenile justice systems to independence, staff from two nationally recognized transition age youth programs and their external evaluators will discuss the ways in which program and evaluator partnerships can generate new research evidence and possibly boost returns on investment in evaluation. The roundtable will explore the process by which programs and evaluators prepare for and execute rigorous evaluation and the challenges and obstacles they face preparing for evaluation in a field supported by limited knowledge about effective programs and services.

Roundtable Leading Examples of Researcher/Practitioner Partnerships That are Advancing Evidence-Based Policy: A Lightning Round of Insights from Researchers (PM)

Location: Georgetown West Moderator: Andy Feldman, Brookings Institution Speakers: Robert Goerge, University of Chicago; Julia Lane, New York University; Mary Ann Bates, J-PAL North America; Lashawn Richburg-Hayes, MDRC; Adam Sacarny, Columbia University; Justine Hastings, Brown University; Dayanand Manoli, University of Texas at Austin; Matthew Hill, University of Pennsylvania Description: What are specific strategies that are becoming increasingly important in evidence-based policy at the federal, state and local levels? And how can researchers become involved in these strategies through practitioner/researcher partnerships? This unique 'lightning round' sessoin will explore three areas that are already playing increasingly prominent roles in evidence-based policy and will highlight real-life examples of successful researcher/practitioner partnerships.

Roundtable Leading Innovation: A New Framework That Links Academic Research and Expertise to the Policymaking Process (POL)

Location: Northwest Moderator: Neil Kleiman, New York University Speakers: Angela M. Evans, University of Texas at Austin; Jonathan Koppell, Arizona State University; Eric Schwartz, University of Minnesota; David Birdsell, Baruch College - CUNY Description: Roundtable participants will discuss new impact-focused approaches that vastly increases the relevance of research activities and graduate level training to address policy problems. Participants will be deans of public policy schools who have been working together around such efforts and have been on the leading edge of establishing formal partnerships with national and local policymakers. There will also be a discussion of successful initiatives in this area including large-scale efforts with the Department of Housing and Urban Development, National Science Foundation, U.S. Census Bureau and numerous mayors around the U.S. The examples will be pieced together into a working framework that will demonstrate ways that schools of public policy and public administration are positively informing policy throughout the country.

Roundtable Many Voices, One Song: Capturing the Impact of Research on Policy (PM)

Location: Holmead West Moderator: Megan Collado, AcademyHealth Speakers: Katherine Hempstead, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation; Kathryn Graham, Alberta Innovates Health Solutions; Khalilah L. Brown-Dean, Quinnipiac University; Don Taylor, Duke University Description: The gold standard for many researchers and the funders who support them is the ability to produce findings that inform policymaking or lead to policy change. An essential step in this process is ensuring that research findings are communicated to key decision makers at the right time, in the right format, and on topics that are relevant to current policy priorities. Yet even when these criteria have been met, researchers struggle with documenting whether and how their work has impacted policy. Amid this challenge, there is a growing interest and an emerging field of study that aims to systematically track the impact of research findings above and beyond academia. This session will explore the research impact assessment and present diverse perspectives on opportunities and challenges for more effectively measuring the impact of research and other evidence on policy and government.

Roundtable Use of Large-Scale Data to Assess Social Mobility (METH)

Location: Cardozo Moderator: Heather Boushey, Washington Center for Equitable Growth Speakers: David Johnson and Martha Bailey, University of Michigan; Timothy Smeeding, Institute for Research on Poverty; Amy O'Hara, U.S. Census Bureau Description: Social and economic mobility has long been the cornerstone of American economic democracy - “The American Dream.� Although many suspect mobility in the U.S. is historically low, there are little data to test whether social mobility is low or has, indeed, declined. This roundtable will present four projects that create data to examine the changes in socio-economic mobility over time and space. Participants will demonstrate the importance of their data in evaluating policies that impact socio-economic mobility over time and changes in the well-being of American families.

The organizer, moderator, and panelists of this roundtable will lead a lively discussion that will: (1) identify a number of government barriers to research aiming to inform government in its mission; (2) review some of the academic and grey literature on related topics and identify areas in which additional research would be welcome; and (3) engage with the audience to consider how government barriers to absorbing important research findings might (or might not) be overcome.

5:00 pm - 6:30 pm Special Events Closing Reception Location: Jefferson Join your peers in celebrating another successful APPAM Conference by attending this closing reception. Hosted jointly with Washington Center for Equitable Growth, attendees are welcome to enjoy complimentary cocktails and hors d'oeuvres as they network and discuss the events of the conference.

Widely known for his pioneering work in integrating genetics and policy analysis, Professor Jason Fletcher and Dalton Conley of Princeton University describe the latest astonishing discoveries being made at the scientific frontier where genomics and the social sciences intersect. The Genome Factor: What the Social Genomics Revolution Reveals about Ourselves, Our History, and the Future is scheduled for release in January 2017. Fletcher serves on APPAM’s Policy Council, as JPAM managing editor, and as co-director of the Integrating Genetics and the Social Sciences Conference, now in its seventh year. After a year-long appointment with the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), Associate Professor J. Michael Collins is studying how financial management impacts medication adherence. He brought applied research findings to the CFPB and helped create projects that integrate financial coaching into social welfare programs, job training, veterans’ programs, and foster care services. Collins, who joined the University of Wisconsin–Madison in 2008, is faculty director of the Center for Financial Security on campus.
