Fragile Families Summer Data Workshop

Fragile Families Summer Data Workshop

Wednesday, Feb 17, 2021

The 2021 Fragile Families Summer Data Workshop will be held online June 14-18, 2021

​​The workshop is designed to familiarize participants with the data available in the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study, a national study following a birth cohort of (mostly) unmarried parents and their children, providing information about the capabilities, circumstances, and relationships of unwed parents, the wellbeing of their children, and the role of public policy in family and child wellbeing.

​The 2021 workshop will include special sections on the 15 year follow-up data, which will become publicly available in early 2021. The workshop is targeted toward early-career scholars from social science disciplines. We particularly encourage applications from junior faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students using the Fragile Families data in their doctoral dissertations. Underrepresented scholars are strongly encouraged to apply.

Applicants must possess basic quantitative data analysis skills. About 25-30 applicants will be selected. 

The Fragile Families Summer Data Workshop is made possible by a grant from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health & Human Development (R25HD074544).

Applications are now being accepted.
