Robert LaLonde

Robert LaLonde is a Professor at the Irving B. Harris Graduate School of Public Policy Studies, at the University of Chicago. He received his Ph.D. from Princeton University in 1985 and taught at the Graduate School of Business at the University of Chicago, and the College of Business at Michigan State University before joining the Harris School faculty in 1999. His research interests include program evaluation, education and training, immigration policy, worker displacement, unions and collective bargaining, and the consequences of incarceration on former prisoners and their children. LaLonde’s poverty-related publications include numerous articles in scholarly journals examining the impact of employment and training services on economically disadvantaged persons and the assimilation of immigrants in the US labor market. His research also has examined the merits of using social experiments and non-experimental methods to evaluate social programs. Currently, his research is focused on two areas: (1) the returns to community college schooling received by displaced workers; (2) the effects of incarceration on young men and on women and their children. Both of these projects require matching large numbers of records from different administrative data sets.

Robert LaLonde joined CReAM as an external fellow in June 2006.
