In broad terms, John Ermisch’s research is concerned with the structure and dynamics of families and their interaction with wider society. His recent research has studied the allocation of resources within the family, the transmission of advantage across generations, parenting and early child development, non-marital childbearing, the interaction of child support and non-resident fathers’ contact with their children and the impact of family ties on trust in strangers. Currently he is studying the intergenerational exchange of support and the interaction between housing transitions and fertility (see http://www.bristol.ac.uk/cmm/research/housing/).
