The Formation and Dissolution of Marriages in the Welfare Population.
Rank, Mark R.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v49 n1 p15-20 Feb 1987
Investigated incidence of, and factors associated with, marriage and separation/divorce in welfare recipients. Race significantly affected probability of marriage; young child in the household and wife's employment status correlated with marital dissolution. Changes in welfare benefits, number of public assistance programs received, and length of time on welfare were not significant predictors of changes in family composition. (Author/NB)
