Dependency in Urban Black Families Following the Birth of an Adolescent's Child.
Zabin, Laurie Schwab; And Others
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v54 n3 p496-507 Aug 1992
Explored correlates of change in short-term economic dependency in households of 307 urban African-American adolescents, approximately one-half of whom bring babies into the family. The presence of a baby significantly affected the adolescent's job dependency but not welfare dependency once prior welfare status was controlled. Multivariate models illustrate roles of transiency, age composition, household structure, and adolescent's father. (Author/NB)
