McLaughlin, Diane K.; Gardner, Erica L.; Lichter, Daniel T.
Rural Sociology, v64 n3 p394-416 Sep 1999
Analysis of census data indicates that female-headed households increased more rapidly in nonmetro than metro counties between 1980 and 1990; industrial restructuring contributed to change in nonmetro and metro female-headed households, with changes in various industries producing different effects; and formation of female-headed households was deterred by employment gains for males, but not females.
