In his work, Harm, Tracking, Endogeneity and Affect is strongly intertwined with Disadvantaged, which is a subfield of Developmental psychology.

His Demographic economics research includes elements of Developing country and Actuarial science. His study in Voucher is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Scholarship, Feeling, Public relations and Tax credit.

His primary scientific interests are in Developmental psychology, Gender gap, Demography, Gender role and Standardized test. His studies deal with areas such as Disadvantaged and Affect as well as Developmental psychology. His Disadvantaged research focuses on Educational attainment and how it connects with Poverty.

David N. Figlio works mostly in the field of Demography, limiting it down to topics relating to Socioeconomic status and, in certain cases, Infant health and Neonatal health, as a part of the same area of interest. He has researched Standardized test in several fields, including Sibling and Child development. His work on Academic achievement is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Demographic economics.
