25 January, 2018 - CLOSER Seminars: Capturing contemporary family diversity in longitudinal datasets

Time: 12:30:00 - 13:30:00

This seminar combines presentations of findings from two complementary research projects funded by the Nuffield Foundation which aim to improve our data and knowledge about diverse families. The first presentation from Rebecca Goldman (Fatherhood Institute) will look at the project, Contemporary Fathers in the UK: what do we know? what do we need to know? which has assessed evidence on UK fathers, including an extensive literature review, and is led by Adrienne Burgess at the Fatherhood Institute. The second presentation from Caroline Bryson (Bryson Purdon Social Research LLP) will look at the project, Understanding the lives of separating and separated families in the UK: what evidence do we need? Caroline will assess how far the UK’s existing survey, administrative and other research data on separated families are – and currently are not – able to provide the range of evidence needs articulated by researchers, policy makers and practitioners.
