Research suggests that the conditions children are raised in affect their development in a number of areas. The Low-Income Working Families initiative examines the conditions that can affect children’s development and interventions to help them cope with trauma, instability, and life in poverty, as well as methods to prevent such occurrences.  Work in this area spans research on the life chances of youth who drop out to work, to state spending on children and the demographics of children of immigrants.
