The Norm of Legitimacy in the Black Family.
Davis, Richard A.
Western Journal of Black Studies, v22 n3 p145-52 Fall 1998
Tested a hypothesis, based on S. Steinberg's (1989) theory of ethnicity, that blacks, especially those of Caribbean extraction, would have a higher illegitimacy rate, higher cohabitation rates, and more open attitudes toward sex because they do not have a norm of legitimacy. Data from the National Survey of Families and Households do not support this hypothesis. Contains 28 references. (SLD)
