International Fellowship: Residential Mobility in Early Childhood in the US and UK
ES/I004955/1, £3,676, Economic and Social Research Council Description Although demographers have documented the high prevalence of residential mobility among young children in the US and the UK, little is known about the consequences of residential mobility for very young children or about the precursors of residential mobility in this population. This application supports a collaboration between Mary Clare Lennon, Professor of Sociology at the Graduate Center, City University of New York, and Heather Joshi, Director, Millennium Cohort Studies, Centre for Longitudinal Studies, Institute of Education, University of London. They propose to combine complementary skills and experience to address important substantive questions: •How do children's lives unfold over time? •What is the effect of change in residence on these developmental trajectories? •What factors precipitate a residential move? •Under what circumstances is moving house an indicator of family instability or precarious wellbeing? Lennon has been studying these issues using data from a US birth cohort study, the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study, while Joshi has addressed similar questions in the UK, using Millennium Cohort Study data. A visiting fellowship provides the opportunity for these investigators to collaborate on their separate yet complementary studies, with the aim of developing a joint proposal to fund a broader comparative study Keywords Cohort/longitudinal study
