Professor of Human Development, University of Maryland

In collaboration with Ronald B. Mincy, Cabrera will examine the connections between low-income fathers’ earnings and financial support and their children’s cognitive and behavioral outcomes. Using several waves of data from the Fragile Families Study, Cabrera and Mincy will explore how the associations between fathers’ earnings and children’s skills are affected by factors such as race, maternal stress, parental engagement, and child care quality.
