ASPE and ACF support the maintenance and continued development of the database of the Research Forum on Children, Families and The New Federalism, hosted at the National Center for Children in Poverty. This database contains information on the large number of research projects on welfare reform, children and families. This will help ensure that researchers are aware of existing projects, and that new efforts are non-duplicative.
This project continues ASPE's on-going core support for the Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID). ASPE funds provide partial support for the continued collection and processing of longitudinal data relevant to research on economic factors and income support mechanisms, health, fertility, medical care, and disability affecting the poor and the elderly. ASPE funds will continue to support an expansion of the set of welfare related questions to assess the entry effects of recent reforms.
