Professor and Chair of Economics Christopher Baum was selected for the 2022 Editors’ Prize by Stata Journal, a quarterly publication containing articles about statistics, data analysis, teaching methods, and effective use of the language of Stata, a general-purpose statistical software package. The award honors contributors of one or more outstanding articles published in the Stata Journal in the previous three calendar years.
The editors cited five articles co-authored by Baum during 2019-2021 as “models of excellence, showing [his] range and mastery of theory and practice in economics, econometrics, and beyond.”
A Boston College faculty member since 1977, and Economics chair since 2018, Baum pursues research interests most recently focused on social epidemiology and health policy. His other research fields include time-series econometrics, financial markets, and macroeconomic policy.
