Fragile Families 2016 Summer Data Workshop

Wed, Jun 15, 2016 (All day) to Fri, Jun 17, 2016 (All day)

The Columbia Population Research Center is hosting the Fragile Families Summer Data Workshop from June 15-17, 2016, at Columbia University in New York City. 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 2016 workshop will include special sections on the neighborhood data in the Fragile Families Study.

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 dissertations. Underrepresented scholars are strongly encouraged to apply.

See the workshop flier or contact for information about the workshop. Our attendee list for the 2016 workshop is now available and past attendee lists are also available for 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015.


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