Peter Glick is a senior economist at the RAND Corporation and professor at the Pardee RAND Graduate School. He has more than 20 years' experience in research on economic development, with a focus on employment, health, education, and poverty.
RAND projects that he has led include an NIH-funded study of health risk behaviors among Palestinian youth, an evaluation of the impacts of cataract surgery on households in rural Ethiopia, and a project to develop capacity and implement labor force surveys in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. A major focus of Glick's work is on youth and employment in low- and middle-income countries. He leads RAND's participation in Solutions for Youth Employment, a coalition including the World Bank and other international organizations, and recently completed a study of youth schooling to employment transitions in Jordan. He is also part of a multi-year project investigating the education and transitions to work, marriage, and parenthood of a cohort of youth in Senegal.
Glick's research has also examined education and health care demand, school quality and learning, gender differences in education and earnings, the impacts on women of export processing manufacturing, HIV/AIDS knowledge and risk behaviors in Africa, and the behavioral and economic impacts of antiretroviral therapy. He has designed and implemented numerous household and provider surveys, including two longitudinal household survey projects in Madagascar and Senegal.
Glick received his Ph.D. in economics from American University.
