Poverty and Behavior: The Case for Multiple Methods and Levels of Analysis.
Huston, Aletha C.; McLoyd, Vonnie C.; Coll, Cynthia Garcia
Developmental Review, v17 n3 p376-93 Sep 1997
Discusses limitations of using behavioral genetic methods for understanding the environmental effects of poverty. Multiple methods provide strong evidence that poverty and related experiences influence children's development through environmental processes that go beyond genetically transmitted attributes. Socioeconomic status is a function of individual abilities, personality characteristics, economic and social-structure conditions, and available-opportunity structures. (Author)
