Outside advisors

Several outside experts helped guide the research in this report. We received valuable advice from David Autor, Ford Professor of Economics, MIT; Stowe Boyd, founder of Another Voice and editor of Work Futures; Jed Kolko, chief economist at Indeed; and Frank Levy, Rose Professor Emeritus, MIT and research associate, Harvard Medical School. While the design and analysis of the project was guided by our consultations with these advisers, Pew Research Center is solely responsible for the design, interpretation and reporting of the data.
