Misty L. Heggeness

Oh hi! It's me! 

My book, SWIFTYNOMICS: Women in Today's Economy, is forthcoming (2025) from the University of California Press. It is my biggest, boldest career challenge to-date, and I cannot wait to share it with you all! Get a sneak peak from these pieces I wrote for Fast Company and TIME or listen to this On Point (WBUR) interview about the Taylor Swift/Beyonce Economy.

Other obsessions: using big data to improve national statistics, identifying gender biases in survey response, and discovering old rusty boxes of data from the national archives to put to good use in social science research.
