Christina Beatty BSc (Hons), MPhil

Professor of Applied Economic Geography


About

Christina is a Professor of Applied Economic Geography in CRESR where she leads the centre's Data Analysis and Policy Team.  She has over 25 years' of experience in undertaking applied policy and evidence based research.  During that time she has managed many national research and evaluation projects utilising large scale data intensive and mixed method approaches to understand the spatial impacts of policy initiatives.  She is especially interested in the intersection of welfare reform, labour market policy, housing policy and regeneration policy, and how this relates to the underpinning regional and local economic geography of Britain.  Her work often highlights the uneven impact of policy decisions and how this can result in unintended consequences in different types of places across Britain.

Since joining CRESR in 1992, Christina has built a substantial body of work investigating the dynamics of labour market participation, economic inactivity and unemployment.   Her work highlights the long-term trends in incapacity benefits, claimants' aspirations and barriers to work, and how this relates to older industrial Britain.  She has developed techniques to estimate the extent of hidden unemployment amongst the workforce and the successful application of labour market accounting techniques utilising small area data.  She has secured ESRC funding to apply these methods in relation to the British Coalfields, Britain's seaside towns, and male and female incapacity benefits claimants.

In recent years, her work has focused on estimating the cumulative impact, as well as individual elements, of welfare reform and its uneven impact on people and places.  As well as many local studies, she has undertaken national studies funded by Scottish Parliament, the Financial Times, Joseph Rowntree Foundation and Oxfam.  Christina also led the quantitative strand of research on the three year evaluation of The Impact of the Changes to the Local Housing Allowance System of Housing Benefit for DWP.  She previously led the data strand of the ten year evaluation of New Deal for Communities for CLG.
