A 3-year study compared three groups among 89 grandparents who were raising their grandchildren: White, African American, and economically disadvantaged African American. Gender, marital status, and household income differentiated minority from nonminority participants. Significant differences were also found between the two groups of African Americans. Implications for research and practice are discussed. (Contains 50 references.) (Author/TD)
