David J. Deming

Deming’s work is broadly in the economics of education, with a focus on the impact of policies and interventions on outcomes other than test scores. His research on the impact of school choice in Charlotte, North Carolina on youth crime and incarceration will appear in the Quarterly Journal of Economics. His research on the impact of Head Start on long-term outcomes such as high school graduation and college attendance was published in the American Economic Journal: Applied Economics. His current work includes a project on the evaluation of high school performance using non-test score outcomes that is funded by the Spencer Foundation, and an IES-funded project on the outcomes of students who attend for-profit colleges. He holds a Ph.D. from Harvard University, an M.P.P. from the University of California-Berkeley, and a B.S. from The Ohio State University.
