Child and Adolescent Development

Children and adolescents are more likely to live in poverty than adults, with 12 year-olds today born in the Great Recession and now facing the second major economic downturn in their short lives. Financial hardship and economic downturns have both immediate and long-run impacts, and investments and innovation in research are urgently required to alter the life chances and trajectories for this generation of children and adolescents. Together, the faculty, funded projects, and data resources at CPIP are positioned to generate transformative and sustained impact on science, policy and, ultimately, the life chances of young people.
