Last week, MetroTrends bloggers offered up solid information about perennial challenges vexing public policymakers in US metros:
- Barbara Ormond ponders what it what it will take to change Americans’ eating habits.
- John Roman offers compelling evidence of declining crime rates in big cities nationwide.
- Molly Scott warns that poverty among Latino kids may be even higher than the latest estimates suggest because so many of their families are doubling to cut housing costs.
- And Greg Mills argues that policy researchers shouldn’t launch randomized control trials until they’ve worked the bugs out of program designs.
See you again next week.
