Depression-Era Research – Much of the Children’s Bureau’s research during the 1930s focused on the effects of unemployment on families and children.

For example, studies looked at living conditions for the vast numbers of adolescents who took to the road and the effects of the economy on families of railway workers. At the same time, the Bureau assumed responsibility for the only monthly national relief statistics available, compiling data from all U.S. cities with populations of 50,000 or more.
