Works by Petra Persson and Raj Chetty were cited in the 2016 Economic Report of the President, in the chapter titled "Inequality in Early Childhood and Effective Public Policy Interventions." The chapter cites Petra Persson and Maya Rossin-Slater’s paper, “Family Ruptures, Stress, and the Mental Health of the Next Generation,” studying how in utero exposure to maternal stress from family ruptures affects later mental health. The chapter also cites several of Raj Chetty’s collaborations studying drivers of intergenerational economic mobility.
