On the Relationship between Divorce Rates and Welfare Spending in the American States: A Comment on Zimmerman.
Monroe, Pamela A.; Garand, James C.
Family Relations, v40 n2 p148-51 Apr 1991
Zimmerman may be correct in asserting that welfare spending and divorce rates are either unrelated or inversely related. However, future research efforts should take advantage of methodological innovations such as pooled cross-sectional time-series analysis, and develop a more comprehensive indicator of states' social integration levels.
