Center for Research on Child Wellbeing [Princeton University] Working Paper: “The Prevalence and Economic Value of Doubling Up,” by Natasha Pilkauskas, Irwin Garfinkel, and Sara McLanahan (WP14-03-FF, April 2014, .pdf format, 16p.).

Abstract:

Doubling up (living with relatives or non-kin) is a common source of support for lowincome families, yet to date no study has estimated its economic value relative to other types of public and private support. Using longitudinal data from the Fragile Families Study, we examine the prevalence and economic value of doubling up among families with young children living in large cities. We find that doubling up is a very important part of the private safety net in the first few years of a child’s life, with nearly fifty percent of mothers reporting at least one instance of doubling up by the time their child is 9-years old. The estimated rental savings from doubling up is significant and comparable in magnitude to other public and private transfers.
