Center for Family & Demographic Research
The Center for Family and Demographic Research (CFDR) is dedicated to research, training, and service in family demography. The CFDR integrates demographic methods, data, and perspectives with other social scientific approaches to understand family formation and stability in addition to well-being across the life course. A special focus of research by CFDR affiliates is attention to development and social context. The CFDR is supported by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health & Human Development and BGSU.
The DRS conducts targeted research for clients to bridge the wide gap between ready-made population statistics and the vast quantity of data. We have the expertise to tap into current demographic data as well as collect and analyze new data. Please contact us with any questions or queries about your research and evaluation needs. Read more
