The SCF is funded by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (FRB). ABOUT FIELD INTERVIEWERS: NORC field interviewers are vital to our nationwide survey research operation.

Many respondents have participated in this survey since the commencement. * A study which gathers data about families' need for child care and the availability of child care in their communities. * A project which combines interview questions, biomeasures (height, weight, blood spots), and information about participant's location to advance our understanding of activity spaces older Americans live in during their day to day lives, and how that changes as they age. * An ongoing study which collects key details about financial assets and liabilities from households in all income brackets so that the sponsor can understand how the economy is changing.
