Research

The CFDR continues to generate cutting-edge research on families and the health and development of children, adolescents, and adults.

The Center provides efficient support to faculty engaged in population science research on fertility and reproductive health, families and households, and social context and well-being. Since its inception in 2000, the CFDR has laid the groundwork for new research, initiating new family demographic data collection efforts that have helped shape the national research agenda on families.
