The Center for Family and Demographic Research (CFDR) is an NIH-funded population research center dedicated to research, training, and service in demography. The CFDR integrates demographic methods, data, and perspectives with other social scientific approaches to understand the well-being of children and families. A special focus of research by CFDR affiliates addresses the public health and social problems facing at-risk children, adolescents, and families.

The Center for Family and Demographic Research at Bowling Green State University has core funding from The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health & Human Development (P2CHD050959).
