This compendium summarizes the results of the Division of Children and Youth Policy's research projects from 1986 through August, 1990, and highlights future plans. The role of research in the division is to produce information on the organization, financing, and delivery of services to children and families, particularly those who are disadvantaged. Recent work has centered on issues related to the expansion of Head Start and the child care components of the JOBS program. Special studies have focused on the process of developing an understanding of the needs of children who test positive for the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and children who have been exposed to drugs. The division is also pursuing several projects related to identifying and promoting family strengths. Contents are divided into five subject areas: (1) child care, child development, Head Start; (2) child abuse and neglect, child welfare, foster care; (3) adolescents; (4) family; and (5) miscellaneous. Each subject area is discussed in terms of completed, ongoing, and planned projects. Project descriptions include the title of the study, principal investigator, an abstract of the subject matter, the project completion date, and a division contact person. (RH)
