Christine Percheski

Sociologist Christine Percheski’s research is focused on family demographics, economic inequality and health policy. With a particular interest in understanding the wellbeing of American women and families, Percheski’s work has probed how the employment patterns of new mothers vary by their partner status, how the Great Recession impacted pregnancy rates, how changes in family characteristics are linked to the increase in income inequality in the U.S., and how health insurance coverage varies by family characteristics. Percheski is an assistant professor of sociology in the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences and a faculty fellow at the Institute for Policy Research (IPR). Before joining Northwestern, Percheski was a Robert Wood Johnson Scholar in Health Policy Research at Harvard University.
