CSDE Research & Highlights

Christine Leibbrand Receives Dean’s Medal for Outstanding Graduate Student in the Social Sciences

Congratulations to Christine Leibbrand, CSDE Fellow and Sociology PhD Candidate, on receiving the Dean’s Medal for Outstanding Graduate Student in the Social Sciences! This honor is given to students in each division of the College of Arts and Sciences for their outstanding record of academic achievement. 

Christine intends to complete her PhD in August 2019. Her dissertation examines whether the economic returns to migration and the economic well-being of migrants and non-migrants have changed within the context of declining internal U.S. migration rates. She has recently published or has articles in press at the American Journal of Sociology, Social Science Research, Social Science History, and The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science.

ZIP Code Crosswalk: Beta Testers Needed

CSDE Visiting Affiliate Amy Bailey and her co-author, University of Illinois-Chicago doctoral candidate Allison Helmuth, invite beta testers for a new ZIP Code crosswalk covering the entire US between 1990-2010. Bailey and Helmuth used a biweekly US Postal Service publication to identify changes in spatial boundaries of ZIP Codes, and created spatial cluster codes to reference the smallest indivisible geographic unit that remained constant.

The beta test crosswalk is available via a Stata .do file and an Excel spreadsheet. You can request access here. In exchange for accessing the Crosswalk, the authors ask that you provide feedback about your experience, which will help them finalize the data tool for public distribution.
