Family Structure among Urban, Rural and Farm Populations: Classic Sociological Theory Revisited.
Albrecht, Don E.; Albrecht, Stan L.
Rural Sociology, v61 n3 p446-63 Fall 1996
Draws on classic sociological theories of Durkheim, Tonnies, and others to suggest that many urban-rural differences found in the past were actually farm-nonfarm differences. Analysis of Current Population Survey data reveals few differences in family structure between urban and rural nonfarm residents, but extensive differences between these and several types of farm residents. Contains 50 references. (Author/SV)
