'Written by respected scholars from a variety of relevant disciplines, this handbook will cover hotly debated issues associated with public policy and funded research as they relate to families and poverty.

Readers wil lalso appreciate the insightful summaries of research involving poverty and its relationship to couple, marital, and family dynamics. 2004 is the most recent year for which this sort of census information is available.
