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 head-are examined to determine their effects on the recent decline in the economic status of black children.
