Growing up with Unemployment: A Study of Parental Unemployment and Children's Risk of Abuse and Neglect Based on National Longitudinal 1973 Birth Cohorts in Denmark.
Christoffersen, Mogens Nygaard
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v7 n4 p421-38 Nov 2000
Explored the role of parental unemployment as a risk factor for abuse and neglect of Danish children between 6-18 years old. Found that incidences of abuse or neglect were seen most often in families suffering from: father's neurotic disorder; diminishing social networks; violence in the family and parental criminality; mother's alcohol or drug abuse; parental lack of vocation training; and mother's long-term unemployment.
