Report Number P23-179
Donald J. Hernandez
Component ID: #ti1301706366


Analyzes the conditions under which households tend to break up and become poor. The report asks: How do households mainly become poor? Is it through the transition to newly-formed single parent families? Or is it through decline in paid work or real income, which also affects households that stay together?

The analysis uses data on the same households collected over time. For example, it studies the influence of marriage, divorce, child-bearing, and employment on a household. Tables also include race and Hispanic origin.

The report is based on the Census Bureau's Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP).

A Note on Language

Census statistics date back to 1790 and reflect the growth and change of the United States. Past census reports contain some terms that today’s readers may consider obsolete and inappropriate. As part of our goal to be open and transparent with the public, we are improving access to all Census Bureau original publications and statistics, which serve as a guide to the nation's history.
