SCID Director Grant Miller and SCID Faculty Affiliate Pascaline Dupas have received grants from Stanford’s Office of International Affairs.

Miller and collaborators at Stanford and in Iran will conduct econometric analyses of the role that Iran’s primary health care expansion played in its dramatic population health gains from 1974 to 2000. The team has acquired a detailed census of Iran’s primary health care infrastructure since the Islamic revolution that can be matched at a highly disaggregated geographic level to population health indicators in Iran’s population censuses conducted in 1976, 1986, 1996, 2006 and 2011.

Dupas and a multidisciplinary team at Stanford are creating early pathways for graduate economics students, specifically those studying development economics, to participate in an international research project through a mentored activity. The aim of the project is to increase the likelihood that doctoral students choose to study international issues, particularly those pertaining to developing countries. Students will join Dupas on projects in Armenia, Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania.
