Families
Families play a central role in shaping the well-being of children and adults; they are a safety net and the primary investor in the next generation. Urban's research investigates how families are faring in the face of today’s economic pressures and demographic changes and assesses the effectiveness of the major public service systems and supports designed to help them thrive.

  • Brief Characteristics and Well-Being of Adults with Nonstandard Work Arrangements

    Workers with nonstandard employment include those with contingent or temporary jobs; indirect relationships with employers (e.g., independent contractors); or paid informal work activities, including “gig” work, in which online platforms are used to request, match, and schedule jobs. In this brief, we assess the prevalence of nonstandard work and the well-being of adults in these work arrangements using nationally representative data from the December 2020 round of the Urban Institute’s Well-Being and Basic Needs Survey.
