Research

CFDR Affiliates conduct important and impactful population science research in areas related to the mission of the Population Dynamics Branch of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child and Human Development. The wide variety of projects fit into three primary research areas (PRAs): (1) Fertility and Family Demography; (2) Social Relationships and Well-Being; (3) Deviance, Crime, and Violence in Social Context. CFDR has a working group for each PRA designed to stimulate new research and collaborations, and CFDR supports the PRAs with a strong set of activities and resources. Each Affiliate works in at least one PRA, but many have research interests that span the PRAs. To learn more about a PRA, including which CFDR Affiliates are working in that area, select one of the buttons below.
