About Olugbenga Ajilore

I am a public finance economist who studies the spatial aspects of state and local government spending, with a specific focus on school district expenditures. I have also published work on the incentive effects of the Work Opportunity Tax Credit and the effect of the Earned Income Tax Credit on African-Americans. My current research applied spatial methodology to the study of peer effects and adolescent behavior including risky sexual behavior and obesity-related behavior.
