NYC Poverty Data Research Fellow
New York, NY

Fellows will work closely with PRU staff to support multiple research projects including statistical data analysis and monitoring the poverty reduction effects of the city’s anti-poverty initiatives.

The Poverty Research Unit (PRU) of the Mayor's Office for Economic Opportunity has multiple openings for fellows in the area of developing and implementing measures of poverty, mobility, and medical care economic risks.

NYC Opportunity produces research and analysis of poverty and social conditions, including its influential annual Poverty Measure (NYCgov poverty measure), which provides a more accurate and comprehensive picture of poverty in New York City than the federal measure. The NYCgov poverty measure has become an important tool for evaluating policies, assessing the progress the city has made over time in reducing poverty and designing new policies to reduce current levels of economic deprivation.
