  • The Child Development Supplement 2014 and Comparing the Original CDS and CDS-2014


The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health & Human Development invites grant applications for research to examine 1) the impact of human-animal (HAI) on typical and atypical child development and health; 2) the evaluation of animal-assisted intervention for children and adults with disabilities or in need of rehabilitative services; 3) the effects of animals on public health, including cost effectiveness of involving animals in reducing and preventing disease.

Relevant PSID-CDS data : Information on pet ownership and attachment and human-animal interaction was collected in CDS-2014 from interviews with primary caregivers (typically the mother) and with older children themselves (aged 10 to 17 years). Diaries administered during CDS I-III (1997-2007) and CDS-2014 also captured time spent with pets. Currently CDS is the only population-representative survey of American children collecting such data on pet ownership and attachment. The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development provided support for this activity (R01 HD052646-S1).
