This grant to Stanford University will support the creation of a comprehensive linked panel, which will be built as part of the Data Linkage Infrastructure program within the Census Bureau. It will be done in three sections: (a) discussions on the technical steps that need to be completed to build out the tax side of this infrastructure; (b) identification of the various uses of the new panel; and (c) a layout of the costs. In building the country’s first comprehensive linked panel, merging data from censuses, tax records, schools, and other administrative sources, the capacity for research and evidence-based policy would be made possible. The panel will improve capacity to examine labor market processes, long-run program effects, and intergenerational program effects, among other important trends.

Grants to this Grantee
for a new paradigm for utility wildfire safety in California
The Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment’s mission is to produce breakthrough environmental knowledge and solutions that sustain people and planet today and for generations to come. This grant supports the institute’s ability to identify more effective utility wildfire safety solutions in California, which is critical to achieving both wildfire resilience and climate goals. (Substrategy: Wildfire)
for the Toward a World Free of Nuclear Weapons project
Former secretary of state George Shultz’s Toward a World Free of Nuclear weapons project has renewed and catalyzed worldwide interest in reestablishing the vision of, and taking steps toward, significant reductions in global nuclear arsenals and their ultimate elimination. In the coming year, Secretary Shultz, renowned physicist Sidney Drell, and former Ambassador James Goodby plan to enlist the support of countries that have nuclear weapons capabilities and those that are potential nuclear weapon states to encourage step-by-step progress toward a reduction in the role of nuclear weapons worldwide. Such steps could include beginning joint aerial monitoring for nuclear weapons testing and developing methods to encourage active participation of the nine nuclear weapons states in accelerating disarmament.
for the Woods Institute Leopold Fellowship
This grant to the Woods Institute at Stanford University would provide communication training to outstanding scientists working in a broad range of environmental fields. The goal is to impart the skills necessary for scientists to translate their knowledge in non-academic settings in a manner that is understandable to decision makers, media, and the public.
