Elizabeth Davis


Dr. Elizabeth Davis is a Professor of Applied Economics at the University of Minnesota. Her research program focuses on economics and public policy related to low-income families, especially on issues around child care and early education. Dr. Davis has examined the dynamics of participation in the child care subsidy program, disparities in access to high quality child care, and the connection between parents’ employment and child care choices. Her research has contributed to the recent policy discussions around "fixing" the child care system by studying the likely effects of different policy proposals on family and child outcomes as well as the supply of child care.
