Fragile Families Challenge: Getting Started Workshop

June 2, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm PDT

“Fragile Families Challenge: Getting Started Workshop”

Ian Lundberg

Ph.D. Student, Sociology and Social Policy,  Princeton University

The Fragile Families Challenge is a scientific mass collaboration that combines predictive modeling, causal inference, and in-depth interviews in order to learn more about the lives of disadvantaged children. Fragile Families Challenge builds on the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study that has been running for about 20 years. The Fragile Families research team has been following about 5,000 families—-collecting information about them and their environment at regular intervals—in order to understand how to improve the lives of disadvantaged children in the US.

 *Co-Sponsored with the Center for Social Statistics, UCLA
