Joseph Ferrie is an economic historian who uses micro-level longitudinal data to study economic mobility. Using data from census manuscripts, passenger ship records, tax lists, and city directories, he has compared mobility in Britain, the United States and France from the 1850s to the present. He is also interested in determining the link between early-life circumstances and later life outcomes, and the migrant from rural areas to cities and towns. He is a research associate of the National Bureau of Economic Research.
