Work, Family, and Time

With 60 participants and a dedicated workshop series, the MPC Work, Family, and Time group is the largest and most active research group at the Center, producing a steady stream of path-breaking research. These scholars conduct research on time use, changing workplaces and workforce composition, and work and family issues in historical and developing economies. Much of this research takes advantage of newly available data now under construction at MPC: integrated time-use data spanning the period from 1960 to the present; linked CPS data for the period since 1962; full count historical census files from 1790 to 1940; and the Census Longitudinal Infrastructure Project. Conveners: Sarah Flood and Steven Ruggles
