Call for Papers
Panel Study of Income Dynamics Annual User Conference 2018:
Child Wellbeing and Outcomes in Childhood, Young Adulthood, and over the Lifecourse
Deadline for submissions: June 4, 2018
Conference dates: September 13–14, 2018
The Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID), with support from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute on Child Health and Human Development, the National Institute on Aging, and the National Science Foundation, announces a call for papers for the 2018 PSID Annual User Conference.
The conference has a special theme: Child Wellbeing and Outcomes in Childhood, Young Adulthood, and over the Lifecourse. The conference welcomes submissions on any topic, from researchers in any field, but with a preference for studies that use data from the PSID Child Development Supplement (CDS)—especially the first round of the new, ongoing CDS that was fielded in 2014 but also the original CDS that was fielded in 1997, 2002/03, and 2007/08.
Submissions are also encouraged that use other PSID supplements with information on child wellbeing and outcomes over the lifecourse, such as the PSID Transition into Adulthood Supplement (TAS) and the PSID Childhood Retrospective Circumstances Study (CRCS).
The submission deadline is June 4, 2018. A total of 20 to 25 papers will be accepted for the conference, either for presentation or as posters. The conference will be held in Ann Arbor, Michigan, September 13–14, 2018. Travel and lodging expenses will be available for one author per accepted paper. Meals will be provided to all conference participants.
