Secondary Data Analyses of Strengthening Families Datasets, 2014-2015

OPRE awarded eight cooperative agreements to fund research to conduct secondary data analysis of archived ACF data, specifically the Building Strong Families (BSF), Supporting Healthy Marriage (SHM), and Community Healthy Marriage Initiative (CHMI) datasets. The grantees are covering topics such as the economic benefits of marriage and relationship education (MRE) programs, child outcomes related to MRE, race/ethnic differences in marriage health and stability, and the experiences of fathers in MRE. Grantees will work collaboratively with their fellow grantees to move the field of research focused on strengthening families forward through the design of complimentary analyses and joint dissemination efforts.
