Article discusses two questions: (1) What are the differences among runaway-homeless, throwaway, and independent youth? (2) What youth demographics, personal characteristics, and family factors predict youth's reunification? Among runaway-homeless youths, family characteristics were most important for reunification; among throwaway youths, problem behaviors predicted not returning home; and among independent youths, only individual demographics predicted reunification.
