Title: School Composition, Family, Poverty and Child Behaviour

University Affiliation: University College London


Research Question:

1. To model the relationship between family poverty across early-to-middle childhood (ages 9 months to 7 years), in terms of both the duration of exposure and its timing, and child behavior (measured as internalizing and externalizing problems and prosocial behavior at age 7).

2. To explore the role of school composition—academic and socio-economic—in both predicting child behavior and moderating the effects of poverty on child behavior.

3. To examine gender differences in the moderated (by school composition) effect of poverty on child behavior.
