Rich Kids, Poor Kids: Changing Income Inequality among American Children.
Lichter, Daniel T.; Eggebeen, David J.
Social Forces, v71 n3 p761-80 Mar 1993
Analysis of census data indicates that the proportions of children in both the wealthiest and poorest families increased during the 1980s, associated with increasing female-headed families and changing patterns of maternal employment. Moreover, increasing racial differences in family structure exacerbated income inequality between African-American and white children. (Author/SV)
