Social and Economic Correlates of Family Structure: A Portrait of U.S. Children in 1983

ReportFamiliesMay 1 1985

This report presents child-based data from the March 1983, Current Population Survey. The data have been reorganized from their usual form which is as information on households, families, or individual adults, to data with children as the unit of analysis. The primary focus of the report is on children’s living arrangements: what kinds of families children live in and how the family and economic situations of children vary according to these differing living situations.
