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.
