research is focused on the family and social inequality His work has examined economic influences on family formation including work on labor union membership and marriage and asset ownership and marriage His current research examines how the economic shocks of the Great Recession have affected relationship quality marriage and fertility A second line of research focuses on household finances and particularly on household financial fragility He has been using the non public versions of data from NCHS available in the RDC network to support his research RDC MICRO DATA PROJECT ABSTRACT AMERICAN FERTILITY IN THE GREAT RECESSION NCHS The effects of the Great Recession on the fertility of American women are examined to understand an array of economic conditions that may affect the likelihood of birth in a given month This project investigates whether macro economic conditions affect fertility for whom these effects are most pronounced and the pathways by which any such effects might operate The National Survey of Family Growth 2006 2010 calendar month data and other data sources will be used to determine how unemployment mortgage delinquency and foreclosure and consumer confidence as well as media coverage of the recession are linked to the likelihood of birth in a given month Data on birth intentions will be employed to provide some insight into whether the recession has reduced plans for future births suggesting lasting effects or not suggesting more temporary effects A set of socio demographic individual characteristics and data on attitudes and family background are used to examine variation in the effects of the recession on fertility Calendar months of conceptions contraceptive use sexual inactivity and romantic relationship status derived from the public use file are used to examine the mechanisms connecting the macro economy to fertility The use of restricted variables region state county and CBSA for Place of Residence at Interview combined with macro economic data at several levels of aggregation to the individual level NSFG data will allow for examination of exogenous variation in economic condition on both spatial and temporal dimensions 2015 12 03 2015 Jonathan Schaeffer Enduring Mental Health Prevalence Prediction Epidemiological evidence indicates that most people will develop a diagnosable mental disorder suggesting that only a minority experience enduring mental health This minority has received little empirical study leaving the prevalence and predictors of enduring mental health unknown We report an analysis of early life demographic family environment physical health cognitive temperamental personality and family history characteristics of individuals who have never been diagnosed with a mental disorder N 171 17 prevalence during the course of the 4 decade Dunedin Multidisciplinary Health and Development Study We then examine how these individuals report coping with stress and how they fare on a set of midlife outcomes including educational attainment socioeconomic status life satisfaction and relationship quality Our findings draw attention to enduring mental health as a revealing psychological phenotype and suggest it deserves further study Lifecourse and intergenerational health in the Philippines The Cebu Longitudinal Health and Nutrition Survey The Cebu Longitudinal Health and Nutrition Survey CLHNS is a multi purpose pregnancy and birth cohort study that has now spanned more than 3 decades Conducted by a multidisciplinary team of researchers from the US and the Philippines the CLHNS has followed a cohort of Filipino women who gave birth between May 1 1983 and April 30 1984 The CLHNS was designed with the Mosely and Chen health determinants framework as an anchoring theoretical perspective Originally conceptualized as a study of infant feeding patterns with the goal of analyzing how infant feeding decisions by the household interact with various social economic and environmental factors to affect health nutritional demographic and economic outcomes The cohort of children and their mothers have been followed in subsequent surveys through 2015 For the offspring generation research is now focused on the long term effects of prenatal and early childhood nutrition and health on later adult health and human capital For the mother generation the study is now focused on the multidimensional pathways to healthy aging The seminar will synthesize results across the 2 age groups to characterize determinants of health across the life course 4815 SSRI

As evidence by protests and unrest in Ferguson MO and Baltimore MD the hashtag social movement to curtail racial profiling and police brutality is still progressing three year later Social scientists public health scholars and activists have documented the severity of police brutality particularly for Blacks and Latinos Missing however is a social psychological analysis that simultaneously combines the utility of sociological and humanist methodologies grounded in content analysis and quantitative analysis This article takes up this challenge by analyzing data from a Twitter database on Ferguson Drawing upon social identity theory which has links to social movements and collectivist action we analyze 31 65 million tweets on Ferguson across four meaningful time periods the death of Michael Brown the non indictment of police officer Darren Wilson the Department of Justice report on Ferguson and the one year aftermath of Brown s death In showcasing the most popular
