Presentation in Cowles Auditorium

The Center for Science, Technology, and Environmental Policy invites you to join us on April 14 at the Humphrey School for a conversation with Professor Yu Xie from the University of Michigan.

Professor Xie will provide an introduction to the China Family Panel Studies (CFPS) survey, as well as preliminary findings from the survey on income inequality, poverty, marriage and cohabitation, and child development.

The CFPS is a nearly nationwide, comprehensive, longitudinal social survey that is intended to serve the research needs on a large variety of social phenomena in contemporary China. Extensive information is collected through computer-assisted person-to-person interviews of all family members. The CFPS promises to provide to the academic community the most comprehensive and highest – quality survey data on contemporary China.

This event is co-sponsored by the Center for Science, Technology, and Environmental Policy, the Minnesota Population Center, and the National Science Foundation.
