Summary Recommendations on the Need for a New U.S. Household Panel
Robert Moffitt, Johns Hopkins University
Following a conference in June, 2014 at which leading researchers discussed whether a new U.S. household panel is needed, the Steering Committee for the conference arrived at summary recommendations. These recommendations include consideration of a new general purpose panel, targeted new panels, and enhancements of existing panels. All three need careful consideration by the scientific community and by funding agencies.
