My name is Ezra Goldstein. I am a PhD Candidate in Economics and L. Charles Hilton Jr. Center Fellow at Florida State University. I am currently on the 2021-2022 job market.
My current research focuses on how family structure impacts the long-run outcomes of children and on racial disparities in the child welfare system.
The second chapter of my dissertation examines the sources of over-representation of Black children in foster care systems and the effectiveness of one popular program in reducing racial disparities in child welfare. Finally, the last chapter of my dissertation highlights that COVID-19 school closures resulted in an under-reporting of child maltreatment allegations and is published in the Journal of Public Economics.
