The Ford School faculty members featured in this articles below explore a broad range of health policy challenges by collecting and analyzing data from panel studies, surveys, interviews, and many other sources. Their discoveries—which find their way out into the world through books, articles, congressional hearings, policy consultations, and the popular press—offer rigorous social science data to help guide health policy decisions.
