Abstract: 

Description: The economic downturn in late 2008 prompted important questions about the familial consequences of economic uncertainty as well as how family environments influence coping and stress associated with financial instability (e.g., employment, income, asset accumulation, consumption patterns, public assistance usage). To address these topics, new data were urgently needed. The National Center for Family & Marriage Research (NCFMR) aimed to fill this critical gap by sponsoring a data collection initiative on families and economic distress.

Population: A survey of 1,000 adults aged 18 years and older from the general population was conducted. The survey was completed by 1,014 respondents out of 1,517 cases (66.8 percent response rate). 

Periodicity: Data collected in 2009.
