Poverty in Female-headed Households: Residential Differences.
McLaughlin, Diane K.; Sachs, Carolyn
Rural Sociology, v53 n3 p287-306 Fall 1988
Examines how individual characteristics and the employment opportunity structure vary for female-headed households in urban and nonmetropolitan areas. Finds little difference by residence on characteristics that influence poverty status. Employed nonmetro women more likely to have poverty incomes while opportunities for female headed nonmetro households were fewer. (Author/TES)
