Take HEART: Experimental Evidence on Enhanced Advising and Postsecondary Progress Over 40 percent of students starting at public 4-year institutions do not graduate within six years, and ample numbers of non-completers leave late in college. Barriers that grow in complexity as students move through college, fertilized by meager mid-college support, may contribute to late-college departure.

The Effect of ENDS Taxes on Substance Use

Seminar: Michael Best

Inequity in public policy generates resentment among citizens. We estimate the impact that inequity in the tax code has on voluntary tax compliance in the context of the property tax in Manaus, Brazil. Using administrative data on the universe of taxpayers and a novel quasi-experimental design leveraging geographic discontinuities in tax liabilities and a large reform, we find that the elasticity of compliance with respect to inequity is 0.14--0.18, slightly larger than the elasticity with respect to a taxpayer's own liability.
