American Family Decline, 1960-1990: A Review and Appraisal.
Popenoe, David
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v55 n3 p527-42 Aug 1993
Draws from U.S. Census data to review family trends of past 30 years. Appraises evidence for family decline in three areas: demographic, institutional, and cultural. Argues that families have lost functions, power, and authority; that familism as cultural value has diminished; and that people have become less willing to invest time, money, and energy in family life.
