Joyce Hahn is a survey statistician in the Longitudinal-Employer Household Dynamics (LEHD) program for the Center for Economic Studies at the Census Bureau. Her work revolves around the quality assurance of LEHD infrastructure data and the development of new public-use files that provide detailed information about employment, earnings and worker movements in the United States. Currently, she is focused on the Job-to-Job Flows (Beta) and Post-Secondary Education Outcomes (Beta) data products. Hahn is also involved in LEHD research exploring trends in earnings and wages in the United States as well as examining how job finding rates vary between metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) and non-MSAs.
Prior to joining the LEHD program, Hahn worked at Evidence for Policy Design, a network of scholars and practitioners at Harvard University who work with partners across the developing world to identify problems and generate rigorous evidence that enables the effective design and implementation of policy solutions.
Hahn holds a bachelor’s degree in political science and sociology from Wellesley College and a master’s degree in public administration/international development from the Harvard Kennedy School.
