The Impact of Transient Domesticity Coparenting in Poor African American Families (ICPSR 35862)

Principal Investigator(s): Golub, Andrew L., National Development and Research Institutes, Inc


The project performs a five-year panel study of 150 poor urban African American households involved with transient domesticity to contemporaneously measure the dynamics of coparenting processes and their impact on adolescent children age 11-16. The project also performs an embedded ethnography with a subsample of the households to more fully identify the dynamics, subjective experiences and impacts in the subjects' own words.
