Current Research

Using data from the Wisconsin Longitudinal Study, we are modeling the impact of work and family roles and conditions across the life course on health, well-being, financial security, and other outcomes in late adulthood.

Integrating, Harmonizing, and Linking Data from the Current Population Survey (with Sarah Flood) Despite the longitudinal design of the Current Population Survey (CPS), researchers have almost exclusively analyzed these data as though they were collected through a series of cross-sectional surveys.  With support from the National Institute for Child Health and Human Development, we are developing integrated data, dissemination software, and associated metadata that will make longitudinal analyses of CPS data radically easier.
