Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study (FFCWS) is a longitudinal birth cohort study of American children in urban areas, run by Princeton University and Columbia University. It uses a stratified random sample technique and an oversample of non-marital births. Baseline data collection ran from 1998-2000, with interviews with both biological parents shortly after the child's birth. Follow-up interviews were conducted when the child was one, three, five, and nine years old. In addition to parents, the last three waves have included in-home assessments, child care or teacher assessments, and interviews with the child. Core aims of the study are to learn about capabilities and relationships of unmarried parents as well as how families and children fare on various health and social measures over time.
