About Amanda

Stevenson  researches the impacts of and responses to abortion and family planning policy in the United States. Stevenson's current research uses demographic methods to study the impacts of reproductive health policies, and computational methods to study social responses to these policies. Stevenson translates her results into policy-relevant findings for non-academic audiences. Stevenson regularly testifies on the demographic impacts of legislation, and she developed an app to disseminate local impact estimates or her policy evaluation work.
