Familial Responses to Financial Instability, How the Family Responds to Economic Pressure: A Comparative Study, 2009 [United States] (ICPSR 26541)
Principal Investigator(s): National Center for Family and Marriage Research; Furstenberg, Frank F., University of Pennsylvania; Gauthier, Anne H., University of Calgary; Pacholok, Shelley, University of British Columbia
This study focused on how families respond to financial instability and economic pressure. A survey of over 1,000 adults aged 18 years and older who have a child younger than 18 years at home was conducted by Knowledge Networks on behalf of the National Center for Family and Marriage Research. The survey was completed by 1,169 respondents out of 1,855 cases (63 percent response rate). In addition to the main survey, respondents were also administered a one-question survey about insurance. Along with the survey variables from the main and the one-question surveys, Knowledge Networks' standard profile, and a series of data processing variables created by Knowledge Networks are included in the data file for the eligible cases (n = 1,169).
These data are freely available.
