a MiCDA Research Project Description

Investigators: David S. Johnson, Katherine A. McGonagle, Narayan Sastry

Funding (subcontract): John Templeton Foundation, 2017-2018 (PO# 1562488)

The Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID) is a longitudinal study since 1968 of a representative sample of U.S. individuals and the family units in which they reside. The study?s long-term span, innovative genealogical design, and comprehensive content have been critical to the fundamental understanding of a wide variety of key social science issues, including those involving life course effects. The goals of this supplement are to 1) collect approximately three minutes of content on philanthropic giving from approximately 9,600 PSID families during Wave 40 (2017), process, and disseminate the data within PSID?s publicly accessible data center (www.psidonline.org) and 2) to process and disseminate philanthropic behavior data collected in the Child Development Supplement (CDS). This work will be co-funded through support received by other sponsors including the National Science Foundation, the National Institute on Aging, and the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development.
