CSDE Seminar Series

CSDE’s Summer Schedule – E-News, Summer Grant Writing Workshop, D4 Workshop, and Planning

Summer has launched at CSDE. E-News moves to a biweekly schedule.  Please continue sending your news items to csde@uw.edu.  We’ll look forward to hearing from you!
Steve Goodreau is leading CSDE’s 2024 Summer Grant Writing Workshop with the largest cohort of participants to date!
Now that CSDE is fully staffed, we’ll be spending the summer cleaning house and planning for next year. We’ll be sending invitations to you and outside speakers to deliver a talk during our seminar series.  If you’d like to speak or have an idea for an outside speaker, please send your ideas to Professor Rawan Arar (arar@uw.edu).  We’d love to hear from you!  We welcome thematic panels, speakers that address research around our research themes (migration, mortality, population growth, population and environment, fertility, settlements and housing, health disparities, and population health), and ideas that would bring multiple groups together from across the three campuses.
Many at CSDE will be planning and hosting the D4 Hackathon on September 9-13: Disasters, Demography, Disparities and Decisions.  This is an inaugural event in collaboration with AI2ES and NOAA.
The rest of CSDE will be working on updating our websites, lists, preparing reports, and planning for next year!  It’ll be a busy summer.

Last but not least, please join me in thanking Katherine Cheng (the person behind csde@uw.edu) for her excellent work in preparing and publishing e-News.  Maddie Farris, CSDE’s Program Coordinator, will be taking over for the summer.  This invaluable work wouldn’t be possible without support from the Evans School.  E-News is a resource that many affiliates greatly appreciate and we thank the Evans School for this support.

CSDE Research & Highlights

Riley, Godfrey, and Colleagues Evaluate Abortion Provision and Delays to Care After Dobbs

CSDE Trainee Taylor Riley (Epidemiology) and CSDE Affiliate Emily Godfrey (Family Medicine) released research with co-authors in JAMA Network Open, titled “Abortion Provision and Delays to Care in a Clinic Network in Washington State After Dobbs“. The Supreme Court decision Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Organization (Dobbs) overturned federal protections to abortion care and altered the reproductive health care landscape. Thus far, aggregated state-level data reveal increases in the number of abortions in states where abortion is still legal, but there is limited information on delays to care and changes in the characteristics of people accessing abortion in these states after Dobbs. This study sought to examine changes in abortion provision and delays to care in Washington after Dobbs using an interrupted time series design. Findings reveal more in-state and out-of-state people are receiving abortion care after Dobbs, but are doing so approximately a week later in gestation on average.

Adhia, Shin, Ward, and Colleagues Identify Strategies for Recruiting and Retaining Early-Career Faculty Members of Color

CSDE Affiliates Avanti Adhia (Nursing), Michelle Shin (Nursing), and Teresa Ward (Nursing) released an article with colleagues in Nursing Outlook, titled “Experiences of recruitment and retention in academia: A collaborative autoethnography of early-career faculty members of color“. The article was lead-authored by Omeid Heidari (Nursing) and included additional co-authors, Kaboni Gondwe (Nursing) and Daniel Suárez-Baquero (Nursing). Recruitment and retention of diverse faculty in schools of nursing continues to be an important challenge, but little has been written from the perspectives of early-career faculty of color on their decision to join academia and their retention. Authors aimed to understand the perspectives of a cluster hire of early-career faculty of color on their recruitment, mentorship and support received, and resources needed for long-term retention. Findings suggest strategies (e.g., targeted resources, diverse cluster hires, building community) to inform recruitment and retention of early-career faculty of color.

Subsidy Overlaps in Federal Housing Policy are Examined by Colburn, Acolin, and Walter

CSDE Affiliates Gregg Colburn (Real Estate), Author Acolin (Real Estate), and Rebecca Walter (Real Estate) authored new research in Housing and Policy Debate, titled “Subsidy Overlaps in Federal Housing Policy“. There is limited and incomplete empirical evidence that documents the extent of overlap, or layering, between federal housing programs, including supply-side subsidies, such as the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC), and demand-side rental assistance. Importantly, we know little about how the overlap varies by time, by geography, and in different housing market conditions. This project uses administrative data collected by federal agencies and public housing authorities to describe over time, at the national level, (a) the percentage of rental assistance recipients that reside in LIHTC units, (b) the percentage of LIHTC units that house a tenant who receives rental assistance, and (c) the number of LIHTC developments that include at least one recipient of rental assistance.

DeWaard and Co-authors Study Spatiotemporal Changes in the Slavery-Inequality Relationship

CSDE Affiliate Jack DeWaard (The Population Council) co-authored new research in Demography, titled “Spatiotemporal Changes in the Slavery–Inequality Relationship: The Diffusion of the Legacy of Slavery“. Despite the persistence of relationships between historical racist violence and contemporary Black–White inequality, research indicates, in broad strokes, that the slavery–inequality relationship in the United States has changed over time. Identifying the timing of such change across states can offer insights into the underlying processes that generate Black–White inequality. In this study, authors use integrated nested Laplace approximation models to simultaneously account for spatial and temporal features of panel data for Southern counties during the period spanning 1900 to 2018, in combination with data on the concentration of enslaved people from the 1860 census.
