Dr. Doug May is Professor of Economics at Memorial University (Newfoundland and Labrador) with a cross-appointment in the Faculty of Business Administration. He currently teaches labour economics as well as economics for managers and cost-benefit analysis primarily to graduate students. Much of Professor May’s past research efforts were in the areas of output measurement and the estimation of production functions as well as income security reform. His current research interests include using advanced statistical techniques to estimate the determinants of health and the determinants of subjective well-being using cross-sectional data. In addition, he is working with Statistics Canada to develop longitudinal data files to measuring industry labour flows and associated turnover as well as earning disparities. As a co-investigator with the On the Move Partnership, Doug will be using taxfiler data to examine the characteristics of permanent interprovincial migrating workers versus those of long-distance commuters.
