Seccombe, Karen
Journal of Marriage and Family, v62 n4 p1094-1113 Nov 2000
During the 1990s, poverty rates in the United States remained relatively stable despite a robust economy. This paper reviews the research and theoretical and conceptual developments during the past decade, including how the poverty line was developed; the causes of the virtually unchanged poverty rate; and the consequences of poverty for children.
