Eggebeen, David J.; Lichter, Daniel T.
American Sociological Review, v56 n6 p801-17 Dec 1991
Links between family structure and the changing poverty of 231,996 U.S. children are examined using child records from 1960, 1970, and 1980 Public Use Microdata samples and the 1988 March Current Population Survey. Results suggest that child poverty and racial inequality cannot be separated from changing family structure. (SLD)
