The Effects of Change in Family Structure and Income on Dropping Out of Middle and High School.
Pong, Suet-Ling; Ju, Dong-Beom
Journal of Family Issues, v21 n2 p147-69 Mar 2000
Using a longitudinal sample of eighth graders who lived with both biological parents in 1988, study estimates the increased risk of dropping out among students whose two-parent families experienced disruption over the subsequent four years. Results suggest that income is a significant contributor to the risk of dropping out for adolescents whose families became mother-only families. (Author/MKA)
