Research and Data on Grandparenting

Grandparents are important contributors to children and society, and there is a growing amount of research about our role and our influence. As we seek to be a clearinghouse of high-quality resources and insights on grandparenting, we also provide up-to-date summary data as well as some original research studies of our own.

This information is an extension of our mission to validate and empower grandparents to be proactive in their commitment to future generations and leave a positive legacy. In addition to the quantitative data, we have included qualitative data based on interviews and questionnaires. Qualitative data is often rooted in personal experiences and accumulated wisdom

Building upon quantitative and qualitative data, our goal is to present solid research and findings which will provide more convincing evidence that grandparents are important contributors to children, families and society.
