MPRC Faculty Associate Frances Goldscheider was awarded an honorary doctor degree from the University of Stockholm in recognition of her contribution to social science research and her lengthy collaboration with that institution.
She is one of three social scientists thus honored. Stockholm University noted that, 'Her research in demography, with a gender based perspective, has focused on family issues such as family formation and dissolution, childbearing and parenting as well as structural factors and new family roles.
Dr. Goldscheider's scientific production is extensive, comprising several key books for the demography discipline. For many years, Goldscheider has collaborated with researchers at Stockholm University in several research projects, resulting in recurring periods as a visiting researcher at the University."
