Seltzer, Judith A.; Bianchi, Suzanne M.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v50 n3 p663-77 Aug 1988
Investigated frequency of contact between children and biological parents who were separated. Used data from 1981 national survey to examine effects of living arrangements and other family characteristics on cross-household ties between children and parents. Found frequent contact occurring for children who had recently lived with absent parent and children who had no substitute caregiver (stepparents). (Author/NB)
