Continuity and Change in American Economic and Social Life: The PSID 2012-2016 (USDA-FNS 2017 Supplement)

a PSC Research Project

Investigators:   Charles C. Brown, Katherine A. McGonagle, Narayan Sastry

The Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID) is a longitudinal study since 1968 of a representative sample of U.S. individuals and the family units in which they reside. The study?s long-term span, innovative genealogical design, and comprehensive content have been critical to the fundamental understanding of a wide variety of key social science issues, including those involving life course effects. With data collected over the past 46 years on the same families and their descendants, the PSID has become a critical part of the social science research infrastructure.

This additional funding will support the inclusion of approximately two and a half minutes of questions designed to assess food insecurity in the 2017 wave of the PSID. The agreement will enable the U.S. Department of Agriculture ? Food and Nutrition Services (USDA-FNS) to provide support for the collection, processing, and distribution of these data, which will support research on effects of food insecurity on the health and well-being of American families.

Funding Period: 09/01/2015 to 12/31/2017
