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.

The Multistate Research Coordinating Committee (NCCC052) is the think tank for launching multistate projects such as Economic and Psychological Determinants of Household Savings Behavior (NC-1172), Rural Low-Income Families: Tracking Their Well-Being and Function in an Era of Welfare Reform (NC-1011), and Family Firms and Policy (NC-1030).
