Poverty among black children has increased in recent years. This monograph focuses on trends in black children's economic well-being between 1960 and 1985. Five factors of family structure, number of earners in the family, geographic location, reliance on public assistance, and the age of the family headóare examined to determine their effects on the recent decline in the economic status of black children.
Cynthia Rexroat, former Research Associate at the Joint Center, is Assistant Professor of Sociology at Clemson University.
