Family & Partnering

Family life and economic status are closely intertwined. Fertility, family formation, family structure, parental relationship dissolution, multiple-partner fertility, and family complexity patterns vary by socioeconomic status, as do parenting behaviors and the quality of children’s home environments. The family contexts in which children are born and raised are, in turn, associated with their own economic and social well-being throughout their lives.
