How Yale economists are informing India’s COVID-19 response

A Yale team’s research into the COVID-19 pandemic’s effects on India’s most vulnerable populations, including urban laborers who lost their jobs and returned to the countryside, is providing policymakers the data they need to address the crisis. 

Led by two Yale economists — Rohini Pande, director of the Economic Growth Center (EGC), and Charity Troyer Moore, director for South Asia economics research at the MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies — the project informed public policy in real time and highlights the role Yale undergraduates are playing in studying the pandemic’s economic fallout in the United States and internationally.
