Brian Joseph Gillespie, sociology graduate student, has received a $14,900 grant from the National Science Foundation to study how early parent-child cohesion impacts later residential proximity of young adults and their parents. 

Gillespie will compare these dynamics in two socially and culturally distinct settings using data collected over more than ten years in the U.S. National Longitudinal Survey of Youth and the Netherlands Kinship Panel Study. 

Findings will help researchers better understand how intergenerational cohesion impacts residence decisions among young adults. 

The study began in September and will run through August 2012.
