A group of researchers, spearheaded by Brown University Professor Emily Oster, have created and made available the most comprehensive databaseon schools and Covid case rates for students and staff since the pandemic started. Her data—covering almost 200,000 kids across 47 states from the last two weeks of September—showed a Covid-19 case rate of 0.13% among students and 0.24% among staff.
In collaboration with the U.S. Civilian Corps (USCC) and executive search firm Odgers Berndtson, Lieut. Gen. H.R. McMaster and a research team at the Hoover Institution have released an in-depth report detailing the lessons learned in the course of domestic COVID-19 response and issuing guidance for the improvement of government and private sector pandemic response in the future.
The fall issue of Hoover Digest is now available online. The journal focuses on topics both classical—the economy, personal freedom, the role of government—and timely, such as cybersecurity, terrorism, and geopolitical shifts.
The Working Group on Health Care Policy devises public policies that enable more Americans to get better value for their health care dollar and foster appropriate innovations that will extend and improve life.
