CSDE Research & Highlights

New Research on Racial Disparities of Monetary Sanctions Published by O'Neill, Kennedy, and Harris

Kate O'Neill, CSDE Trainee Ian Kennedy, and CSDE Affiliate Alexes Harris recently published a new article in Sociology of Race and Ethnicity. The paper explores neighborhood-level associations between and across monetary sanctions ("legal financial obligations" or LFOs), poverty, and racial and ethnic demographics. The authors find that LFOs are more burdensome in high-poverty communities and communities of color, and also that LFOs exacerbate multiple dimensions of inequality.

Rothschild, Guthrie, John-Stewart, Drake and Co-Authors Release Research on Contraceptive Methods in Kenya

CSDE Trainee Alum Claire Rothschild, along with CSDE Affiliates Allison Drake, Brandon Guthrie, Grace John-Stewart and several additional co-authors recently published an article evaluating the role of side effects in Kenyan women's decisions to switch or discontinue contraceptive methods. The authors find that some specific side effects more than others were linked to contraceptive discontinuation, suggesting that providing anticipatory counseling around contraceptive side effects and the development of new products that minimize these specific side effects would support contraceptive use among this population.

Call for CSDE Proposals: Population Research Planning Grants

CSDE has funds available to provide a variety of forms of support for affiliates submitting grants from now through this summer. This might include funding for hiring an RA (quarterly or hourly), hosting or hiring consultants from inside or outside UW, hiring CSDE scientific staff, acquiring data sets, organizing a mini-workshop or writing retreat, or many other possibilities!  One key restriction, however, is that funds cannot be used for faculty salary support or course buyout.

Applications are rolling, and CSDE's core leadership will review proposals every two weeks until the funds are exhausted. Early applications are encouraged!
