The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) in 2010 that solicited input on possible regulatory approaches to reducing the number of blade contact injuries associated with consumer use of table saws. Econometrica reviewed and critiqued the CPSC estimates of annual injuries and social costs associated with these injuries. Based on an extensive analysis of the CPSC injury estimation and cost methodologies, Econometrica developed alternative estimates of injuries and injury costs that were used to support the comments the Power Tool Institute submitted in response to the ANPRM.

Market: Housing & Community Development

Start Year: 2017

Client: Minnesota Housing Partnership

Services Provided: Real Estate Impact Analysis, Training and Technical Assistance, Literature Review, Market Analysis, Data Collection

The Minnesota Housing Partnership (MHP) contracted with Econometrica to develop a database of innovative programs that support homeownership. The Econometrica Team conducted an extensive search, focused on the following types of housing domains: cross-cultural outreach, displacement prevention, elderly/disabled, employee, grants, counseling, loan/mortgage, low-income, multigenerational, self-helps, and veterans. We identified programs targeted at underserved populations that used innovated strategies to provide an entry to homeownership. Econometrica provided a database that MHP included as an appendix to their report, COMMUNITY FIRST: Ensuring Housing Development Meets the Demands of the Market and Existing Residents. This report was published on the HUD Exchange website in December 2017.
