Access to Los Angeles Family and Neighborhood Survey (L.A. FANS) Now Available through DSDR!

altThe Los Angeles Family and Neighborhood Survey (L.A.FANS) is a two-wave study of adults and children in Los Angeles County and of the neighborhoods in which they live. L.A. FANS was designed to enable research on neighborhoods themselves and on neighborhood effects on households and individuals. The survey includes longitudinal data on neighborhoods, adults, and children, and on residential choice and neighborhood change. Data can be used to answer key research and policy questions on a wide range of topics related to the population of Los Angeles and urban structure and change, including: adult health and health disparities, immigrant well-being, social ties and neighborhood interaction, marriage patterns, ethnic identity, family survival strategies, family dynamics, the interactions of individual behavior and neighborhood social and physical environments, and many others.

The L.A. FANS data series consists of three public-use and nine restricted-use studies. Nearly all L.A. FANS data are available in the public use data sets. A table comparing the public and restricted-use renditions is available on the L.A. FANS series page.

L.A. FANS was conducted under the auspices of RAND Labor and Population. The RAND Corporation has delegated responsibility for providing access to L.A. FANS data to DSDR.
