Robert Plotnick Retires, Leaving Storied Legacy Behind
Posted: 6/5/2017 (CSDE Awards and CSDE Research)
Robert Plotnick, CSDE Affiliate and UW Professor of Public Policy, is retiring this spring, and we’d like to highlight some of the remarkable work he’s done for demography over the course of his career. From his assessment in his 1975 publication, Progress Against Poverty, of the War on Poverty’s impact to his recent role in Seattle’s Minimum Wage Study, Dr. Plotnick has tirelessly and meticulously studied the world around him to help us all better understand it. Scott Allard, fellow CSDE Affiliate and Professor at UW, recapped the significance of some of Dr. Plotnick’s work in a blog post–you can read it below.
Congratulations on a decorated career, and thank you for your invaluable contributions to population science!
