The Child Development Supplement (CDS) is one research component of the PSID, a longitudinal study of a representative sample of U.S. individuals and the families in which they reside. Since 1968, the PSID has collected data on family composition changes, housing and food expenditures, marriage and fertility histories, employment, income and wealth, time use, health, and more. In 1997, the PSID supplemented its core data collection with additional information on PSID parents and their 0-12 year-old children. Five years later, the same children and adolescents (then aged 5-18 years) whose families remained active in the PSID panel as of 2001 were interviewed for a second time.


Within the context of family, neighborhood, and school environments, CDS studies a broad array of developmental outcomes including health, emotional well-being, academic achievement, and social relationships with family and peers. The CDS survey design is complex, relying on time diary methodology, cognitive assessments, height and weight measurements, and computer-assisted personal self-interviews. Data are collected from multiple family members and the schools that the youth attend.

Data and documentation are available on the Internet free-of-charge. The PSID-CDS Data Center is a user-friendly interface that allows the easy creation of customized data files and codebooks in a variety of formats.

Women’s Communities & Mobility Over the Family Life Course" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, Montreal Convention Center, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Aug 11, 2006 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2019-05-27 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p104153_index.html>

Abstract: This research evaluates the effect of family life course events on the probabilities that women will move from their communities and, if moving, how far they will move from their communities. Using internal Census micro-data files for migration & mobility between 1995 and 2000, we construct four mobility outcomes: 1) remaining in the same house, 2) making a local move within the local labor market, 3) leaving the labor market entirely. Controlling for other individual and family characteristics, we then use hierarchical linear models to estimate mobility probabilities for these outcomes associated with four family transitions; the birth of the oldest child, the oldest child entering primary school, the oldest child entering middle school, and the oldest child entering high school. Our results show the influence of community characteristics on mobility behavior associated with women’s life course transitions.

3. Jiang, Maorong. "China’s Foreign Relations Dilemma: An Ethical Catch-22?" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ISA's 49th ANNUAL CONVENTION, BRIDGING MULTIPLE DIVIDES, Hilton San Francisco, SAN FRANCISCO, CA, USA, Mar 26, 2008 <Not Available>. 2019-05-27 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p253417_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: Applying western political hegemonic and realist theories, this paper aims to reveal China’s ethical catch-22 mindset from a non-Confucian perspective, while it also attempts to rationalize, from Chinese theoretical perspectives, China’s traditional “mid-way” approach in handling its foreign relations. Although in theory China upholds its antihegemony policy in foreign affairs, its domestic and international endeavors make a joint point, where the views on the same subject can be interpreted differently depending on the rationale. For example, the Chinese people are inspired to make their country one of the world powers, whose voice is destined to shape global affairs. And yet, China challenges the world political power structure and opposes hegemonic politics, a strategic destination for which China is set to mobilize its people. This is the foreign relations dilemma. This paper intends to explore the joint point by looking into the layers of China’s hegemonic social methodology deeply rooted in the Confucian mindset and the nature of its paradoxical foreign policy. The paper will historically examine China’s imperialist past to illustrate the durability of a parallel mentality in foreign interaction. The findings of this paper will also shed light on the Chinese concept and practice of contradiction in achieving intended objectives. Ironically, the objectives often fall short of glory. The paper’s conclusion searches for an ethical answer to China’s rise to international prominence and the impact of the catch-22 in its foreign relations.

Abstract: This analysis correlates the NCA ranking of the quality of doctoral programs to the number of faculty, the number of citations in the Web of Knowledge to articles by the faculty, number of citations to articles, number of manuscripts cited and number of communication articles cited. The correlations remained significant after partialing out the number of faculty in the program.

Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: Students will examine a selection of self-portraits and reflect on what and how those images communicate something about the artist. After debriefing on the ways that self-concept, self-esteem, and self-worth are communicated in this variety of self-portraits, students will create and present their own self-portrait to the class, discussing the communicative decisions they made regarding how to present themselves. This will help students understand the dimensions of self and how they are communicated in interaction.
