    Neighborhood Disadvantage and Children’s Cognitive Skill Trajectories

    This study examines how neighborhood disadvantage is associated with children’s trajectories of growth in math and reading skills in early elementary school. It seeks to understand better how the communities in which children attend school affect their academic success in early grades, and how these associations vary by students’ characteristics.

    Past and Present Differences in Opportunity by Neighborhood

    This project seeks to understand how mobility has evolved over the course of the 20th Century to predict how it may evolve over the next 30 years. It examines neighborhood factors that affect mobility and investigates whether the historical characteristics of childhood neighborhoods affect adult outcomes. The paper includes results for children by race, gender and levels of parental income.

    Spatial Patterns of Work, Poverty, & Safety Net Provision in the U.S.

    This project explores two questions: how labor force participation has varied across different geographic contexts in recent decades; and how well-matched the safety net is to need across the urban, suburban and rural landscape. The analyses investigate labor force participation by gender, education and geography; changes in work and poverty by place over time; and gaps and mismatches in safety net provision.

    Growth and Change in the Composition of Vulnerable Nonresident Fatherhood

    This study looks at the number and composition of vulnerable nonresident fathers who have limited ability to pay their child support obligations. Using a representative state’s policies, it provides rough predictions of how many nonresident fathers would have negative income after meeting their full child support obligations, their own basic needs and tax obligations. It also describes the demographic composition of these vulnerable fathers.
