NCFMR

The National Center for Family & Marriage Research (NCFMR) was established in 2007 to improve our understanding of how family structure is linked to the health and well-being of children, adults, families, and communities and to inform policy development and programmatic responses. Wendy D. Manning and Susan L. Brown codirect the NCFMR at Bowling Green State University. This project is supported with assistance from Bowling Green State University. From 2007 to 2013, support was also provided by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation.

Share of births to unwed mothers has doubled, finds Manning, Brown, & Stykes.
This increase in unwed childbearing has been driven by over a 300% increase in share of births to cohabiting mothers...
There’s a lot more action going on with older adults than we think, said Brown.
