Distinguished Lecture Series - Changes in the Family: Impacting Children's Life Chances

Over half of all births to young adults in the United States now occur outside of wedlock. As a result, today’s children face growing poverty and inequality. Through the lens of behavioral economics, The Brookings Institution’s Isabel V. Sawhill will explore how changing family structure impacts child well-being, drawing heavily on her new book, Generation Unbound: Drifting into Sex and Parenthood Without Marriage.
