CESR Researchers are working on a number of initiatives in LA County, and are seeking funding to build an "LA Observatory." This program will combine survey data, stakeholder interviews and analysis to get at what affects residents of LA County, from health food choices, pollution, gentrification, homelessness, traffic, and politics.
Our partners include USC's Eliminating Homelessness Initiative, and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, USC Dornsife Office of the Dean, Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics, The City of Los Angeles Mayor's Office.
Recent projects include:

- LA Observatory Panel Data baseline (under development)-Marco Angrisani, Kyla Thomas, Brian Finch, Ying Liu
- The Impact of Improvements in Built- and Social-Environments and Housing on Obesity in Public Housing Residents: Evidence from a Natural Experiment in South Los Angeles)-Ashlesha Datar, Anya Samek
