About the Project

This project examines paid leave in Missouri using publicly available data and also estimates the costs and benefits of a range of paid sick leave options for the state with a US Dept of Labor microsimulation that was released in March 2020.  The project team is Emily Johnson (IPP Associate Director), Rachel Dicke (Ph.D. candidate in the Truman School), and Adrienne Ohler (Associate Research Professor, MU School of Medicine).  The opportunity came to IPP because of past work conducted by Emily Johnson for United Women’s Empowerment (United WE).
