Dr. Miller has led more than 150 studies, including 25 surveys, dozens of statistical analyses of large data bases, and more than 50 economic analyses. His primary emphasis areas include health economics, injury prevention, substance abuse prevention, and in earlier years, housing, economic development, environmental, and public finance analyses. He founded the Children's Safety Network Economics and Insurance Resource Center, which has worked since 1992 to forge child safety partnerships between insurers and advocates. The Center received a Nationwide Insurance On Your Side Highway Safety Award in 1996. Dr. Miller is an internationally recognized safety economist with over 200 publications. He is a leading expert on injury and violence incidence, costs and consequences, as well as substance abuse costs. His cost estimates are used by the U.S. Department of Transportation, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the Justice Department, and several foreign governments. Increasingly, Dr. Miller has extended his costing methods to analyze other health problems and societal ills. One recent study, for example, focused on the costs of youth problem behaviors including underage drinking, drug abuse, high risk sexual behavior, violence, and suicidal acts. He has estimated benefit-cost ratios for more than 160 health and safety measures. Dr. Miller is a Fellow, Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine. He was the 1999 recipient of the Excellence in Science Award from the American Public Health Association's Injury Control and Emergency Health Services Section and received the Vision Award from the State and Territorial Injury Prevention Directors Association in 2005.
