Jorge Luis García
Labor and Applied Microeconomist
My name is Jorge Luis García. I am a labor and applied microeconomist interested in combining the creation of novel datasets with economic and econometric methods to design, understand, and evaluate public and social policies.
I am a PhD Candidate at the Department of Economics of The University of Chicago, a Senior Research Assistant at the Center of the Economics of Human Development, and a member of the Early Childhood Interventions Network of the Human Capital and Economic Opportunity (HCEO) Global Working Group.
My job market paper studies fertility in China between 1970 and 2010, with a special focus on the effect that the One-Child Policy had on the decrease in fertility after its enactment.
