About the PNAS Member Editor
Name Cherlin, Andrew J.
Location Johns Hopkins University
Primary Field Social and Political Sciences
 Election Citation
Cherlin is a social demographer who documents family change and its socioeconomic effects. He has shown that marriage has lost practical importance in the U.S. but has greater symbolic social standing than ever, causing the institution to strengthen in the upper classes but weaken in the lower classes.
 Research Interests
I continue to study trends in family life in the U.S. and around the world. In addition, I am studying the economic and social situation of the American working class, using both quantitative and qualitative research methods.
