Analyzed the influence of socioeconomic, demographic, and familial factors on extended family support among adult African Americans. Data from the National Survey of Black Americans, 1979-80, indicated that informal support networks and exchange relationships were commonplace among African Americans, and age, familial relations, and income were predictors of extended family support.
