American Fathers in the 21st Century
This project assessed the factors influencing, and the impact of, men's involvement in parenting. The study will be conducted by researchers at Battelle's Center for Public Health Evaluation and Research and will entail large-scale, national data collection, including repeated interviews with up to 5000 fathers over a 5-year period. As co-Principal Investigator Lye has been involved in all aspects of study design and development, and will have extensive involvement in data collection and data analysis throughout the project.
Intergenerational Relations: Old and New Immigrants.
This project will entail collection of new data on grandparent-grandchild relations in established and recent immigrant communities. The study will be conducted by researchers at the University of Washington's Center for Research on Aging and the University of Washington's School of Social Work. As co-Principal Investigator Lye had extensive involvement in the study design and preparation of analysis plans, and will supervise data analyses.
Adult Child - Parent Relationships After Divorce
This project focused on the consequences of parents' divorce and remarriage for long-term relations between parents and their children (into the child's adulthood) and explored the policy implications of the breakdown in adult child - parent relations for care of the elderly. The project was funded by the National Institutes of Health--National Institute on Aging. As co-Principal Investigator Lye was involved in all aspects of study design, analysis plan development, and actual analyses of the data.

Population Growth and Environmental Change
This project summarized recent technical research concerning the impact of population growth on environmental quality for a non-technical audience, and highlighted the policy implications of this research. Lye was Principal Investigator.
Below Replacement Fertility in Industrialized Countries
This project explored recent patterns of childbearing in various industrial countries, and assessed the factors leading to sustained, unusually low birth rates. A substantial research effort was devoted to developing cross-nationally comparable measures of childbearing. The impact of differing social policy environments for patterns of childbearing were analyzed and reviewed. Lye was Principal Investigator.
Poverty and the Underclass: Building a Research Capacity at the University of Washington
This project explored issues related to poverty in the Pacific Northwest and entailed development of plans for a larger research effort. Lye was centrally involved in study design, specification of research questions, and development of analysis plans.
Family Independence Study
Lye provided assistance to researchers at the Evergreen State Institute for Public Policy as they developed research projects with graduate students at the University of Washington using data collected by the Family Independence Study. Lye assisted students in the specification of research questions, study design, and research plan development, and supervised students as they undertook research. Lye provided colleagues at the Evergreen State Institute for Public Policy with critiques of students' proposed research to assist them in developing high-quality research projects.
Influences on U.S. Couples Risk of Divorce
This project investigated factors influencing the risk of divorce. Lye was centrally involved in all aspects of study design and analysis, and pioneered the application of new methods of analysis that have since become the accepted standard for analyses of time dependent family behaviors.
Trends in Divorce in Industrial Countries
This project investigated trends in divorce in various industrial countries, and the factors responsible for the increase in divorce. The research included the influence of public policy environments (divorce law etc) in bringing about the increase in divorce and in mitigating the consequences of divorce. The research also included development of cross-nationally comparable indicators of divorce rates. As Principal Investigator Lye was responsible for all aspects of study design and analysis.
Consequences of Teen Childbearing
