The Effects of Parental Employment on Child Poverty.
Lichter, Daniel T.; Eggebeen, David J.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v56 n3 p633-46 Aug 1994
Summarizes data from 1990 Current Population Survey supporting three general conclusions: (1) parental employment and children's poverty are linked in married-couple and female-headed families; (2) child poverty rates are insensitive to parental employment; (3) black-white differences in child poverty are not result of racial differences in paternal and maternal employment.
