Congratulations to Shatakshee Dhongde, assistant professor in the School of Economics, who, in August, was awarded the Nancy and Richard Ruggles Memorial Fund Prize for her paper, “Measuring Segregation of the Poor in India.” 

In the paper, Dhongde proposes a poverty segregation curve to measure regional inequality in the distribution of the poor in India. Her studies indicate that, since the economic reforms of the early 1990s, there has been a significant increase in the segregation of the poor in India, particularly in the urban sector. 

The Ruggles Prize aims to develop the scholarship of young researchers. Dhongde was presented the Prize at the at the International Association for Research in Income and Wealth (IARIW) General Conference held in Boston.
