New Report: The Complex and Varied Households of Low-Income Hispanic Children

January 28, 2015

A new look at family structure, living conditions, and adult employment  in low-income households found that the more than five million Hispanic children with families below the poverty line face both potential advantages and challenges compared with their white and black peers. Our research report, The Complex and Varied Households of Low-Income Hispanic Children, notes differences in the characteristics of low-income Hispanic children’s households headed by parents who were born in the United States and those born elsewhere– in some cases providing notable advantages to the children with at least one foreign-born parent.
