Abstract

Child poverty in the 1990's remains high, especially in nonmetro areas. In 1997, 14.1 million children under 18 were poor, representing 40 percent of the poverty population. Poor children are more likely to live in mother-only families, to be Black, and to have parents who have lower education and who are not employed. This article examines the poverty and welfare recipiency status of children to better inform policymakers about the potential effects of welfare reform efforts.
