Transitions from Preschool through High School: Family, Schools & Neighborhoods-Administrative Supplement

a PSC Research Project

Investigators:   Narayan Sastry, Paula Fomby, Katherine A. McGonagle

The primary goal of the Child Development Supplement (CDS) to the Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID) is to advance our understanding of how experiences in childhood and adolescence influence outcomes over the life course, with a special focus on children from minority and economically disadvantaged backgrounds. This supplement will contribute to Aim 1 of the funded project, which is to ?design and field a new PSID Child Development Supplement in 2014, collecting data on approximately 6,800 children aged 0?17 years through interviews with primary caregivers (typically the mother) and with older children themselves (aged 9?17 years).?

The funded project to design and field a new round of CDS presents an immediate and compelling opportunity to incorporate measures of pet ownership and human-animal interaction (HAI) into a nationally-representative sample of American children. CDS provides a nationally-representative sample of approximately 6,800 American children aged 0 to 17 years. The data will be collected through interviews with primary caregivers (typically the mother) and with older children themselves (aged 9 to 17 years). CDS also includes a unique diary study of children?s time use. Currently no population-representative survey of American children collects data on pet ownership and attachment, and no study has collected information on children?s time use that incorporates time and interaction with pets. Incorporating questions on pets and human-animal interaction into the CDS questionnaires will support the larger goals of CDS and contribute to a better understanding of the relationship between human-animal interaction and child development and well-being.

Funding Period: 09/26/2014 to 07/31/2018
