Marybeth Mattingly

Beth Mattingly is director of research on vulnerable families at the Carsey School of Public Policy. She manages all of the Carsey Institute’s policy relevant work relating to family well-being. Topics covered by the vulnerable families research team range from refundable tax credits, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and other federal programs, as well as policies that help families balance the domains of work and family like access to affordable child care and paid sick leave. Her interests center on women, children, and family well-being. Her work at the Carsey Institute examines child poverty and how different family policies affect rural, suburban, and urban families and how growing up in poverty influences life outcomes. Beth's research also explores how families adjust their labor force behavior during times of economic strain. Additionally, she examines several poverty-related issues including how families cope with economic distress, intimate partner violence, and childhood maltreatment.
