ERIU Funded Research

ERIU has more than 58 funded projects. Below you will find topical and author listings for these projects and links to completed papers.

Research Highlights
ERIU produces research highlights based on a subset of its funded research. The intent of these is to provide various policy audiences with up-to-date research findings on relevant topics.

Research Findings
ERIU produces research findings for the initiative's funded projects. These short documents provide a summary of the paper's key econometric findings, methodology, and limitations. Research findings also outline potential implications of the research.

Working Papers
Completed ERIU-funded research projects each result in a working paper that provides details about the study approach and findings. Many of the studies subsequently result in articles published in peer-reviewed journals. Substantive revisions made during the journal publication process may not be reflected in the working papers.

Q & A with the Author
The Research Highlights are accompanied by Q & As with the authors. These interviews provide additional insight into the key findings and policy applications of their research project. Additional interviews with ERIU-funded experts focus on their broader research agenda and their evaluation of a variety of important health policy topics.
