Peter Hudomiet is an economist at the RAND Corporation. His research interests include applied econometrics, labor economics, economics of aging, and health economics.
Most recently, Hudomiet has published papers about trends in the prevalence of dementia in the United States; subjective and objective job demands at older ages; and the effect of psychological factors and personality traits on retirement outcomes.
Currently, he is conducting research on dementia (prevalence, trends in prevalence, lifetime risks, associated costs); retirement (non-traditional retirement paths, job mismatch, cognitive and health barriers to extend working lives, effects of technological change); and the accuracy of subjective probabilistic expectations (mortality expectations, job loss expectations, improving measurement of subjective expectations). Hudomiet has a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Michigan, an M.A. in economics from the Central European University, and an MSc in computer science from the Budapest University of Technology.
