Title Data Points Episode 49 - LEO Labs Fighting Poverty
Content

The Fighting Irish are fighting poverty at the Wilson Sheehan Lab for Economic Opportunities (otherwise known as LEO) at the University of Notre Dame. The center is identifying the data-centric, effective and scalable programs that help people move out of poverty. LEO’s research is conducted by Notre Dame faculty "as well as scholars from across the country with expertise in designing and evaluating the impact of domestic anti-poverty programs."

In this episode, we talk to James Sullivan, the Rev. Thomas J. McDonagh, C.S.C., Associate Professor of Economics and LEO's cofounder. We learn more about LEO in general, as well as its evaluation of projects which address juvenile recidivism and efforts to prevent homelessness.
