Shatakshee Dhongde, associate dean for academic affairs and associate professor in the School of Economics, was interviewed for the Sept 17, 2021, segment of The Indicator, a podcast produced by NPR's Planet Money team.
In the segment, Dhongde discusses the U.S. Census Bureau's annual report on poverty which showed "that pandemic aid helped keep a lot of Americans afloat last year".
It was a big relief. Honestly, we were scared that we might see very high poverty levels...and that was not the case.
