A Meta-analytic Review of Family Structure Stereotypes.
Ganong, Lawrence H.; And Others
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v52 n2 p287-97 May 1990
A meta-analytic review examined 26 research studies on stereotypes related to family structure. Three hypotheses were explored: that married adults, parents, and children of married parents are all perceived more favorably than their single, nonparent, or child-of-single-parent counterparts. For all three comparisons, traditional nuclear family status was perceived more positively than other family structures. (Author/TE)
