Real Time Population Survey

Adam Blandin, Ph.D. assistant professor in the VCU School of Business and Alexander Bick, Ph.D., associate professor at Arizona State started the biweekly Real-Time Population Survey out of a desire to use their skills as economists to help policymakers, reporters, analysts and the public during the COVID-19  pandemic. 

Since launch, their research has been cited widely in national publications such as The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, Business Insider, Forbes, The New York Times and The Washington Post, and has drawn attention from notable economists worldwide.
