Abstract: 

Description: The Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study was designed to address four primary questions: (1) What are the conditions and capabilities of unmarried parents, especially fathers?; (2) What is the nature of the relationships between unmarried parents?; (3) How do children born into these families fare?; and (4) How do policies and environmental conditions affect families and children?

Population: Cohort of ~5,000 children born between 1998-2000, in 20 large U.S. cities (population of 200,000 or more).  Mothers and fathers interviewed at birth, then ages one, three, and five, and in-home assessments conducted at age three and five. 

Periodicity: Data available for birth, age one, three, and five collection periods.  Nine-year follow-up data collected between 2007-2010, not yet available.
