Hope Harvey, JCHS Meyer Dissertation Fellow, Ph.D Candidate, Sociology and Social Policy Program
Living in a doubled-up household is a common childhood experience, yet we know little about the cumulative effects of these households on children. In this talk, Harvey will present estimates of the impacts of three types of doubled up households: 1) those formed with the child’s grandparent(s), 2) those formed with the child’s adult sibling(s), and 3) those formed with another adult(s). Her analyses provide evidence that this increasingly common household form may shape children’s life chances in significant ways.
This talk is part of the Center’s ongoing Housing Research Seminar Series, which gives faculty, senior researchers, and graduate students the opportunity to present and discuss current and recent work with a mix of scholars and practitioners.
