The design of the Proposed Budget for the HUD Supplement to Support Survey Data Collection in the First Wave of the NICHD grant HD069680 on Housing Trade-Offs: Principal Investigators Thomas D. Cook (Northwestern University) and Stephen Raudenbush (University of Chicago), includes interviews will be completed with 3,450 children aged 3-8 and a guardian in the household in four metropolitan areas (Seattle WA, Denver CO, Dallas TX, and Cleveland OH).
Assuming approximately 30 percent of households with eligible children have at least one additional eligible child, we estimate interviewing a total of 2,654 households ? 1,327 from local housing authority lists and 1,327 from random screening in selected neighborhoods located in census blocks with average household incomes at or below the area median income. Eligibility includes having at least one child aged 3?8 living in the home. Once a household has been determined as eligible, interviewers will complete interviews with one adult and all eligible children.
