Divergent Paths of American Families


But the most troubling finding, researchers say, may be how American families have taken divergent paths: White people, the educated and the economically secure have much more stable family situations than minorities, the uneducated and the poor.

“Race and ethnicity, education, economics and immigration status are increasingly linked to how well families fare.”
