The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged conventional thinking, dramatizing the essential contributions that “care infrastructure” can make to economic well-being. Unfortunately, available data to study care provision in the United States are limited and fragmented, making policy analysis difficult. Led by three co-principal investigators, this grant will support a comprehensive in-depth review of care data shortfalls in consultation with a set of diverse experts in the field, and allow the project to develop a set of specific recommendations to improve data resources to study care provision, in particular the synergies between unpaid and paid care. The hope is that this project will help bring the positive impact of increased public support for care provision into focus, revealing its potential to simultaneously reduce gender inequality and enhance family well-being.
