Caregiving Across the Life Course in Rural and Urban Households in the North Central Region

Tuesday, February 27, 2024  /  2:00 PM – 3:00 PM (Eastern Time)

To incentivize interdisciplinary collaboration across land-grant institutions in the North Central Region (NCR), the North Central Regional Center for Rural Development (NCRCRD) developed the North Central Region dataset (NCR-Stat) program. This webinar will introduce our second dataset – NCR-Stat:Caregiving Across the Life Course Survey developed by researchers from the NCRCRD, The Ohio State University, the National Farm Medicine Center, Penn State, AARP, University of Minnesota, Purdue University, University of Rhode Island, and South Dakota State University.

The dataset focuses on child, adult, and elder caregiving as an integral part of household and community well-being. The survey aims to learn more about the individuals and families that provide care and how caregiving affects community and economic development in rural and urban communities across the North Central Region.
