About Andrew

Andrew Burwick studies the implementation and costs of early childhood and family support programs.

Burwick has conducted domestic and international research focused on early childhood interventions. He recently led an analysis of the costs of implementing five models of evidence-based early childhood home visitation programs. For a national survey of Early Head Start programs, Burwick developed and analyzed quantitative measures of program management and led qualitative analyses of management systems and program services. In the area of family support, Burwick directed a groundbreaking study that identified the knowledge base and developed a research agenda on the human service needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender populations, including runaway and homeless youth. He served as principal investigator on an impact and cost-benefit study of welfare-to-work programs for low-income people in rural areas and has conducted qualitative research examining such issues as welfare privatization and the use of vouchers to deliver social services.

Burwick has presented at numerous professional conferences, including meetings of the Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management and the Society for Prevention Research. He holds an M.P.A. from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University.
