NCCC052: Family Economics

Family economics examines how individuals and families obtain and use resources—such as money, time, human capital, material resources and community services—by exploring the relationship between individuals and families and the larger economy and by studying the impact of public issues, policies and programs on family economic well-being.

The Family Economics Research Coordinating Committee (NCCC052), functioning under the National Agricultural Experiment Station System, facilitates collaboration among family economics researchers nationally and internationally and provides a forum to examine research methodology and family economic issues in depth from a multidisciplinary perspective. The committee fosters development of research related to the economic well being of individuals and families that is of interest to multiple institutions across the nation.

Faculty affiliates of the U of I Center for Economic and Financial Education are actively involved in NCCC052 and in helping the committee to identify and set national research priorities for family economics research. NCCC052 publishes a series of policy briefs related to these key research areas.
