Los Angeles Family and Neighborhood Survey (LA FANS) is a longitudinal study of families in Los Angeles County, California, and of the neighborhoods in which they live. The LA FANS is specifically designed to study both family choices about neighborhoods and the effects of neighborhoods on children (e.g. educational achievement). Studying both issues at the same time provides a basis for understanding neighborhood effects on children. By focusing on policy issues such as welfare reform, the LA FANS also provides evidence on how policy changes can affect the neighborhoods and families in which children grow up.
