Has Children's Poverty Become More Persistent?
Duncan, Greg J.; Rodgers, Willard
American Sociological Review, v56 n4 p538-50 Aug 1991
Traditional measures indicating little net change in long-term poverty for children between the late 1960s and the early 1980s mask certain statistical and demographic changes. A rise in female-based households, fewer well-paying jobs for younger workers, and greater dependence on social assistance have offset smaller family sizes and parental educational gains. (CJS)
