Biography

I work in the Fertility and Family Statistics Branch (in the Social, Economic, and Housing Statistics Division) at the US Census Bureau, where I am the resident Fertility Expert. I was recently lead author on our new fertility report, Fertility of Women in the United States: 2012, which is linked below. 

My work includes the analysis and development of fertility content in the following three federal surveys: the American Community Survey (ACS), the Current Population Survey (CPS), and the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP). My particular research interest is in multiple partner fertility families, although my work looks at all aspects of fertility and families. Notably, the redesigned SIPP instrument (SIPP 2014) will include complete fertility histories for both men and women, and will include the first direct question about multiple partner fertility in a national survey.
