Data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth was used to examine the effect of various family structures on behavioral and cognitive outcomes for children aged 7 to 10. Results indicate family income, mother's psychological functioning, and quality of home environment are important for behavior, whereas family income and mother's aptitude have notable effects on cognitive test scores.
