National Center for Family & Marriage Research (NCFMR)
The National Center for Family & Marriage Research (NCFMR) was established in 2007 to help 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.
This project is codirected by Wendy D. Manning and Susan L. Brown with assistance from Bowling Green State University. Support was also provided by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation from 2007 to 2013.
View our May issue of News and Notes. We produce and electronically distribute News and Notes to keep you informed on current NCFMR activities. We also announce funding and research opportunities, provide registration information for conferences and workshops, and keep you up to date on current research findings.
Professor Karen Benjamin Guzzo, CFDR director & NCFMR affiliate, shared her thoughts with "Rolling Stone" on the possibility of a COVID-19 Baby Boom.
“There’s so much uncertainty,” says Guzzo. “I think people are thinking, ‘Maybe we’ll wait a little bit and see how things turn out’ [before conceiving].” She predicts a “big drop” in births over the next few years.
