The NCFMR, contracting with Knowledge Networks, provided four research groups an opportunity to empirically measure and examine how families respond to financial strain, using a large, web-based household survey.  Data collection was completed in September 2009, and the data are now available for public use via the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR)
