Patterns of Living in California's Migrant Labor Families. Research Monograph No. 12.
Hawkes, Glenn R.; And Others
This report presents a study of the living patterns of California's migrant labor families, one part of a national study on the identification of life patterns among relatively disadvantaged families. Data were collected from 169 interviews with homemakers randomly selected from 12 state-owned migrant camps in California. The interviews consisted of fixed-alternative questions in the following areas: (1) neighboring practices (social interaction); (2) income index; (3) steadiness of income; (4) kinship orientation; (5) family orientation; (6) family cohesiveness; (7) parental permissiveness; (8) marital satisfaction; and (9) value orientations to education and employment. Some general findings in each of these areas are examined. (ED)
