Romich and Freitag Lead Efforts to Establish New Data Repository at UW

Posted: 5/14/2023 (CSDE Research)

CSDE Affiliate Professor Jennie Romich will be leading an effort to establish a new statewide data repository at the University of Washington – Washpop – for population and policy research on topics including, criminal justice and safety, economic prosperity and equity, and health and social well-being. Professor Romich worked with CSDE Trainee Callie Freitag on getting this state funding, an effort which was also supported by CSDE, the Population Health Initiative, and the School of Social Work.  Many Evans faculty and doctoral students have been part of the data work and projects on which Washpop will be based, including the members of the Seattle Minimum Wage Study. Deep appreciation to all the work Jennie and Callie, as well as many others in our community, have put into the effort to launch Washpop.
