Resources for Thesis Writers First Edition

First of an occasional series.  This from my wiki pages "Resources for Students."  Here's a list of sources of data for students who might be interested in doing research related to families.
  • The Centers for Disease Control have sponsored a data collection effort called National Survey of Family Growth. Info about data access is here. The site also contains useful reports and a bibliography.
  • The MIT "Reality Commons" project at the human dynamics lab makes some data available. Some of it looks like it might have a family connection.
  • The Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study is a joint effort by Princeton University’s Center for Research on Child Wellbeing (CRCW) and Center for Health and Wellbeing, the Columbia Population Research Center and The National Center for Children and Families (NCCF) at Columbia University. The Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study is following a cohort of nearly 5,000 children born in large U.S. cities between 1998 and 2000 (roughly three-quarters of whom were born to unmarried parents).
