The Determinants of a Mother's Choice of Family Structure: Labor Market Conditions, AFDC Policy or Community Mores?
Winkler, Anne E.
Population Research and Policy Review, v13 n3 p283-303 Sep 1994
This study attempts to clarify the effect of welfare generosity on family structure while controlling for community mores, local labor market conditions, and other sociodemographic characteristics. Local labor market conditions are found to significantly affect marriage and single-motherhood, whereas community conservatism is found to discourage cohabitation. (LZ)
