Trajectories and Consequences of Nonmarital Fathering (ICPSR 34561)
The goal of this project was to investigate the factors associated with men becoming unwed fathers and the nature and consequences of unmarried fathers' involvement with children. Using three national datasets (the National Survey of Family Growth, the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1979, and the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study), this research provides new information about the process, content, and consequences of nonmarital fathering for children and families.
These data are not available from ICPSR. Users should consult the data owners directly (via Trajectories and Consequences of Nonmarital Fathering) for details on obtaining these resources.
