Hispanic Women in Texas: An Increasing Portion of the Underclass.
Firestone, Juanita M.; Harris, Richard J.
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v16 n2 p176-85 May 1994
Data from the 1980 and 1990 Current Population Survey files show an increasing proportion of female householder families and increasing poverty rates among Hispanic females in Texas, despite increases in labor force participation rates, hours spent in paid labor, and levels of education. Results refute human-capital and cultural-context explanations for the plight of Hispanic women. (KS)
