How to Improve Living Cost Estimates for Students

I am thrilled to be presenting at the Real College conference in Philadelphia weekend on potential ways to improve the living allowance estimates that students receive as a part of their cost of attendance. This expands on my prior research (with Sara Goldrick-Rab of Temple and Braden Hosch of Stony Brook) documenting the incredible amount of variation in living allowances within individual counties.

Since the conference is completely booked and I have heard from several people who were interested in seeing a copy of my slides, I am happy to share them here. Stay tuned for a new working paper this fall that dives deeper into these topics!
