Research

Today's families are more complex than ever, particularly among disadvantaged populations. The Child and Family Research Partnership (CFRP) seeks to understand how current demographic trends affect parents and their children, what factors contribute to both positive and negative child outcomes, and what policy and programmatic changes can be implemented to improve child and family wellbeing. Areas of research include family supports, fatherhood, early childhood investments, child welfare, and adolescent health and wellbeing.
