PRB Names Diana Elliott Vice President for U.S. Programs

WASHINGTON, November 2, 2022—PRB today announced Diana Elliott as its new vice president for U.S. Programs. Elliott will oversee a deep portfolio of work on aging, child well-being, inequality and other important demographic trends across the United States, as well as longstanding collaborations with the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the Appalachian Regional Commission and the U.S. Census Bureau.

Elliott was previously a senior fellow in the Center on Labor, Human Services and Population at the Urban Institute, where she focused on programs and policies that support family financial security and economic mobility. During her tenure, she led research teams working on social and economic policy issues ranging from potential barriers to credit access for minorities to the likelihood of miscounts in the 2020 Census and work-based learning programs like apprenticeships.

“Diana’s impressive technical background and her approach and commitment to exploring challenges in our increasingly diverse and complex society make her the right person to lead and shape PRB’s U.S. research portfolio at this time,” said Jeff Jordan, PRB’s president and CEO.

Before joining the Urban Institute, Elliott oversaw research on family financial security and economic mobility at The Pew Charitable Trusts, where she was instrumental in fielding a major national survey on American family finances. Earlier in her career, she was a family demographer in the fertility and family statistics branch of the Social, Economic and Housing Statistics Division at the U.S. Census Bureau.

Elliott holds a doctorate in sociology from the University of Maryland, College Park.
