Description/Abstract

Family structure (whether a child lives in a single parent or married family) is a strong predictor of childhood poverty. While childhood poverty has been on the decline, there is still a high rate of poverty among children in single-mother families, affecting the health of these children. This data slice describes the trends of childhood poverty among different family structures in the U.S.
