The 2022 Fragile Families Summer Data Workshop has extended its deadline to April 9th, 2022. The workshop will be held in-person on June 22-24, 2022 (virtual attendance is available). Travel and hotel costs will be covered for successful applicants. 

​The workshop is designed to familiarize participants with the data available in the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study (FFCWS), 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 workshop will be focused on data from the public-use Fragile Families files, from the baseline through Year 15 waves. These data can be downloaded by researchers through the Princeton University Office of Population Research Data Archive. Panelists may also discuss data from the restricted-use contract files, but participants need not have the contract data to participate in the workshop. Researchers will also discuss the ongoing 22-year follow-up data collection. This year's workshop theme will be FFCWS contextual data. 


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 (2R25HD074544-06).
