Fellows represent the highest authority of the Society, electing its Officers, Council, and new Fellows in annual elections conducted in the autumn.

To be eligible for nomination as a Fellow, a candidate must have published original contributions to economic theory or to such statistical, mathematical, or accounting analyses as have a definite bearing on problems in economic theory, and must be or become a member of the Society.
Case’s research interests are in development and health economics. She is researching a variety of aspects of health and wellbeing in South Africa, and the determinants of health both in the U.S. and in developing countries.
She received an M.P.A. from the Woodrow Wilson School and a Ph.D. from Princeton.
