Part of City of Vancouver fonds
Subseries consists of records from a research project conducted by Dr. Perter Bunton at the City of Vancouver Health Department. The research was intended to test the hypothesis "that children born out-of-wedlock have a poorer prognosis in terms of psychosocial development than children born to comparable mohters and raised in the context of a stable home." The project was a longitudinal survey to the age of 30 months of a cohort of illegitimate babies born in Vancouver between August 14 1972 and February 14 1973. Results were compared to a control group of babies born into two-parent families during the same time period.
Records include research proposals, correspondence, computer printouts of research data, subject case files, and final report.
