A Contrast of Black and White Feminization of Poverty
The feminization of poverty was most pronounced from 1959 through 1978, and was more extreme among blacks than among whites. It resulted almost equally from a deterioration of female-headed household poverty status relative to that of the rest of the population, and from a demographic shift into female-headed households. Between 1978 and 1991 there was little net change in the percentage of the poor living in female-headed households; thus, the trend was mitigated over those years.
