- How prevalent is childhood poverty in Virginia?
- How does family structure relate to childhood poverty?
- Are current poverty amelioration strategies — particularly those promoting marriage — sufficient given what we know about childhood poverty?
One of the key findings is "While children in single- and cohabiting-parent families make up one-half of all children in and near poverty, the other one-half of all poor and near-poor children lives with married parents."
I'm wondering if and how this research can inform public policy and practice in DC. Thoughts?
