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.
