This graduate seminar explores changes in family behaviors and household relationships from a demographic perspective.  It focuses centrally on contemporary trends in the U.S., considering (often competing) interpretations of the causes and consequences of family change and variation. Emphasis will be placed on critically evaluating research in this area, including assessments of data quality, research design, and causal inference.  Topics include cohabitation and marriage, divorce, fertility, family structure, and the intersection of work and family.

When Offered Spring.
