Family Economics Research
Family economics research focuses on how
individuals and families obtain and use resources
of money, time, human capital, material resources,
and community services. The research also
explores the relationship between individuals
and families and the larger economy and studies
the impact of public issues, policies, and
programs on family economic well-being.
