GMS faculty affiliates Daniel Chatman (DCRP), Karen Frick (DCRP), Daniel Rodriguez (DCRP) and GMS core faculty member Joan Walker (CEE) have been awarded a CITRIS seed grant to investigate factors affecting compliance with shelter-in-place orders instituted in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.  In their study, "Social distancing and sheltering in place: Using a nationwide smartphone panel with location data to understand population heterogeneity and inform intervention methods," they will collect data on the underlying structural and economic factors that condition people’s ability to comply with social-distancing and shelter-in-place rules.
