Center for Research on Child Well-Being [Princeton University] Working Paper: “State Earned Income Tax Credits and Participation in Regular and Informal Work,” by Sumara Potter Gunter (Working Paper WP11-03-FF, February 2011, .pdf format, 41p.).

Abstract:

I use variation in state EITCs between 1997-2005 to identify changes in informal and regular labor supply by unmarried men and women with children. Men’s participation in the informal sector declines by 6 percentage points if a state EITC increases by 10% of the federal credit. Usual regular-sector hours worked per week increase by 4.1 and informal-sector hours per week fall by 2.7 with no effect on total hours. Single men with children appear to respond to state EITCs on the intensive rather than extensive margin and shift away from informal work toward regular work without changing total labor supplied. I find no effects on women’s participation in either regular or informal work.

Harvard University School of Public Health Diversitydata.org… Update: “Diversitydata.org now features rankings, maps, and charts based on newly released Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) data for 2009 (2005 and 2008 data also available.) Explore how the incidence of high interest rate loans, loan denial rates, loan originations and applications differ for borrowers of different race or ethnicity and, in some cases, income level, across metro areas. Compare concentrations of high interest rate loans in predominantly minority versus predominantly white neighborhoods. Contrast patterns of home purchase loans with refinance loans and identify changes over time. Investigate the dramatic increases in government-backed loans as a share of mortgages.”
