Are Families Becoming More Complex?

If you require an accommodation to participate in this event, please contact Anna Massey at at least one week in advance of this event.

Judith A. Seltzer is professor of sociology and director of the California Center for Population Research at the University of California, Los Angeles. Previously, she was on the faculty of the University of Wisconsin–Madison, where she contributed to the development and implementation of the National Survey of Families and Households. Her research interests include kinship patterns, intergenerational obligations, relationships between nonresident fathers and children, and how legal institutions and other policies affect family change. She is especially interested in kinship institutions that are in flux, such as marriage and cohabitation in the contemporary United States or divorced, non-marital, and step families. She also explores ways to improve the quality of survey data on families, and in 2013 Seltzer and her colleagues added a module with family rosters to the Panel Study of Income Dynamics to provide new data on U.S. family networks. She currently serves on the Committee on National Statistics (CNSTAT) of the National Academies of Sciences (NAS). Previously she served on the CNSTAT Standing Committee on Reengineering Census Operations, and several NAS panels on the census. She was president of the Population Association of America in 2016. She has a B.A. in sociology from Princeton University and both an M.A. and Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Michigan.
