The New York City Longitudinal Survey of Wellbeing
Launched in 2012, the New York City Longitudinal Survey of Wellbeing study tracks economic and social wellbeing in New York City (NYC). Asian Americans have been the fastest growing ethnic group in NYC in recent years, now accounting for 14% of NYC residents. Among Asian Americans, Chinese are the largest ethnic group.
The Chinese Welfare State
Using various national household survey datasets as well as administrative data and a cross-national comparative perspective, this research aims to understand the Chinese welfare state both conceptually and empirically and places the Chinese case in the global context.
Aging, Care & Health
This research focuses broadly on aging, care, and health among Chinese and Asian American older adults and examines the social and economic determinants of health and other outcomes of older adults.
Comparative Social Policy
Drawing from theories and empirical research, this project compares social policies and social welfare systems across Asian countries such as China, Japan, South Korea, and Vietnam with those in other parts of the world such as Australia, Germany, United Kingdom, and the United States.
Gender Inequality & Time Use
This project uses the China Family Panel Studies data to provide new evidence on the gender gap in time use among Chinese couples in both urban and rural areas. It also investigates whether education helps narrow the gender gap in time use among Chinese couples.
Migration & Child Development
This research draws on several large-scale surveys on families and children in China to examine the consequences of migration for children.
Poverty & Social Assistance
This research investigates the causes and consequences of poverty and assesses the effectiveness of social assistance policies and programs in addressing poverty in China as well as in other countries such as South Korea and Vietnam.
Religion, Subjective Well-being & Volunteerism
Considering religiosity as a multidimensional construct, this research aims to unpack the various mechanisms linking religiosity to subjective well-being among Chinese citizens.
Study of Asian American Families
The Study of Asian American Families (SAAF) aims to investigate the acculturation and childrearing experiences of Asian American families and advocate for social services to meet their needs.
