The Effects of the Recession and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act on Workers and Families: A Panel Study in Southeast Michigan

a PSC Research Project [ARCHIVE DISPLAY]

Investigators:   Sheldon H. Danziger, Kristin Seefeldt

Conduct a three-wave panel study of a random sample of 1,000 household in Southeast Michigan (Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb counties), gathering new data, to explore how the severe recession and the collapse of stock and housing prices and the economic recovery program are affecting economic and non-economic well-being of workers and families.

Analyze these data to: assess whether and how social welfare programs and ARRA spending can offset the negative effects of the recession and housing crisis;
explore how changes in exposure to economic hardships and use of social programs affect health and socio-economic disparities between African Americans and non-Hispanic whites; and compare changes over the past 5 years in financial well-being and access to financial services and credit.

Publish and disseminate findings through disciplinary journals in the social sciences, public health, public policy, and social welfare.

Present research findings to academic and policy audiences, as well as through the media.

Funding Period: 10/01/2009 to 12/31/2011

Country of Focus: USA
