Hur, Yoon-Mi; Bouchard, Thomas J., Jr.
Child Development, v66 n2 p330-45 Apr 1995
Estimates the extent to which heredity influences perceptions of childhood family environment in a sample of 58 monozygotic and 46 dizygotic pairs of adult twins who were reared apart. The data confirm the importance of genetic factors in some, but not all, measures of family environment. Environmental influences were more important than genetic influences. (DR)
