Field-Test New Protective Factors Survey to Help Military FamiliesA new survey which aims to measure protective factors among military families is seeking military and non-military participants for field-testing. The survey is an adaption of the Protective Factors Survey, 2nd edition (PFS-2), and is called the MPFS. While the tool is designed for military families, researchers need it tested by as many families as possible, including non-military families. The MPFS is anonymous and should take between 10-15 minutes to complete. Your participation will help researchers identify the best ways of supporting military families in the US and abroad. The survey was developed by Greentrike, in collaboration with FRIENDS National Center on Community-Based Child-Abuse Prevention and the University of Kansas Center for Public Partnerships and Research. Complete survey here.
This brief, using nationally representative data from the Head Start Family and Child Experiences Survey (FACES 2019), explores how families experience and perceive available resources and whether the measurement of constructs such as material hardship, financial strain, and social support provide better predictors of family and child well-being than measuring household income alone.
This report provides a national picture of the children attending Head Start in fall 2019 and their families. It shares information about the Head Start Family and Child Experiences Survey (FACES) study, including the background, design, methodology, assessments, and analytic methods, as well as detailed descriptive statistics in a series of tables on children and their families.
