Transitions from Preschool through High School: Family, Schools & Neighborhoods

This project will continue the collection of data on children in the Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID) under Grant R01-HD052646. The current grant has supported the relaunch of the PSID Child Development Supplement (CDS) through two major waves of data collection in 2014 and 2019, funding the collection of panel data on a new generation of children in PSID families who were all born after the launch of the original CDS cohort in 1997. Six waves of CDS have been conducted and a seventh is underway: three on the original cohort of children (in 1997, 2002, and 2007) and three completed (in 2014, 2019, and 2020) and one currently in the field (2021) on the next generation of children. Our goal is to conduct a new wave of CDS in 2023 that will complete the transformation of CDS from a cohort design, reflected in the original CDS, to an ongoing panel in which all children aged 017 years in PSID families are interviewed at least three times (45 years apart) over the course of childhood and in which the sample is refreshed each wave by adding children born since the previous wave. Steady-state data from the new, ongoing CDS will allow studies of health, development, and well-being in childhood; the relationship between childrens characteristics and contemporaneous family decisionmaking and behavior; and the effects of childhood factors on subsequent social, demographic, economic, and health outcomes over the entire life course for these individuals as they are followed into the future as part of the ongoing PSID. Further, CDS-2023 will provide an unparalleled new resource for studying the effects of Covid-19 on children and families in the US. Data collection for CDS-2019 was largely complete when the pandemic began, providing invaluable baseline data. Subsequent outcomes are being tracked through limited follow-up waves in 2020 and 2021. CDS-2023 will provide a comprehensive assessment of the effects of Covid-19 on childrens outcomes.
