Summary
The overall goal of the Baby's First Years project is to provide the first definitive understanding of the extent to which household income plays a causal role in affecting children's cognitive, socio-emotional, and brain development early in life for children born into low-income families. Some 1,000 mothers of infants with incomes below the federal poverty line were recruited in four diverse U.S. communities between May 2018 and June 2019. All are receiving monthly cash gifts via disbursement on a debit card for the first 40 months of the child's life. Parents in the high cash gift group (n=400) are receiving a cash gift of $333 per month ($4,000 per year), whereas parents in the low cash gift group (n=600) are receiving a cash gift of $20 per month ($240 per year). In order to understand the impacts of the unconditional cash gift on children's cognitive and behavioral development, the researchers will assess high and low cash gift group differences at age 3 (and, for a subset of measures, ages 1 and 2) on measures of cognitive, language, memory, self-regulation, and socio-emotional development. To understand how family economic behavior, parenting, and parent stress and well-being change in response to the cash gift, the researchers will examine high and low cash gift group differences in family expenditures, food insecurity, housing and neighborhood quality; family routines and time use; parent stress, mental health and cognition; parenting practices; and child care arrangements at child ages 1 and 2. Our four data collection points are referred to as: "Baseline", "Age 1", "Age 2", and "Age 3". The current collection includes data and related materials regarding study design from the Baseline data collection.
