Mathematica studies the stability and well-being of families with children—particularly families with limited means—to deepen understanding of programs to help them succeed. Our research provides insights into how parent's success in the labor market, programs to protect families against economic and personal misfortune, and strategies to address the needs of families headed by parents who had their first child as teens can affect the material comforts, self-esteem, and well-being they and their children enjoy, as well as the quality of couple and family relationships.
