Relationships Between Family Disability and Family Interaction Patterns: A Metropolitan-Nonmetropolitan Comparison of Southern Black Families.
Taft, Earl A.; Jackson, Sheryl R.
The possibility of a relationship between family disability and interaction patterns was examined in this paper. The projected analysis attempted to answer these questions: (1) What relationship exists between the degree of disability and internal family interaction? (2) Are there any place of residence differentials in internal family interaction by degree of family disability? and (3) Are there any structural type differentials in internal interaction by degree of family disability? Data were collected by interviews with 259 families in a nonmetropolitan and 294 families in a metropolitan area of East Texas. The major findings was that there was no general consistent pattern of relationship between degrees of family disability and interaction for composite interaction or for any of the interaction items.
