A new study by Indiana University found women, younger individuals, those with lower levels of formal education, and people of color are being hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic.
With generous financial support from the Responding to the Addictions Crisis Grand Challenge and the Office of the Provost, as well as support from the College of Arts and Sciences, Indiana University researchers will have access to a rich new data resource of administrative health claims.
In 2016, IU President Michael A. McRobbie announced the Grand Challenges program to solve some of our state’s and world’s most pressing problems. Through extensive, interdisciplinary work across six campuses, IU has since developed cancer-killing treatments, helped communities adapt to climate change, and so much more. Here’s just a sampling of the progress we’ve made.

Faculty members and graduate students from Indiana University Bloomington presented research findings this week at the 112th annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, a four-day meeting in Montreal. Four studies are highlighted below.
Raising the minimum wage by $1 per hour would result in a substantial decrease in the number of reported cases of child neglect, according to a new study co-authored by an Indiana University researcher. Congress is considering increases to the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour, and several state and city governments have enacted or are considering minimum wages higher than the federal rate. A $1 increase would result in 9,700 (9.6 percent) fewer reported cases of child neglect annually as well as a likely decrease in cases of physical abuse, said Lindsey Rose Bullinger of IU's School of Public and Environmental Affairs.
Expanded Medicaid eligibility under one part of the Affordable Care Act results in a cost savings for the federal government, according to new Indiana University research. The finding is significant because it indicates that an effort by Congress to save money by trimming Medicaid spending may actually drive up costs in another part of the budget. As residents of 32 states sign up for Medicaid benefits expanded under the act, known as the ACA or Obamacare, some of those residents are dropping off the rolls of the more costly Supplemental Security Income program for the disabled poor, the team of researchers discovered.
Indiana schools on average remain largely segregated by race, ethnicity and family income, according to data recently analyzed by the Center for Evaluation and Education Policy, or CEEP, at the Indiana University School of Education in partnership with the Civil Rights Project at UCLA.
