The following supplementary tables, each dated March 1977, are provided in the appendix: (1) Number of own children under 18 and family income in 1976, by age of children, type of family and employment status of parents; (2) Number of own children under 18 and median family income in 1976, by age of children, type of family, employment status of parents, race and Hispanic origin; (3) Number of families with own children under 18 and family income in 1976, by age of children, type of family and employment status of parents; and (4) Number of families with own children under 18 and median family income in 1976, by age of children, type of family, employment status of mother, race and Hispanic origin.
