Elisabeth Root has been awarded an Innovative Seed Grant for her project "Children on the move? Childhood residential mobility and the effects of neighborhood on child well-being." Co-PI on the $40,000 award is Stefanie Mollborn of Sociology and IBS. The project will seek to understand how children’s neighborhoods change over time, the longitudinal effects of residential neighborhoods, and the different geographic scales at which important social and economic processes affect child well-being. Project findings will provide insight into how mobile children and their families are during early childhood and what proportion of children appear to be upwardly mobile during this time.
