Divided opportunities : minorities, poverty, and social policy by Gary D Sandefur( Book )

7 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A healthy economy is the best offense against poverty, but economic growth alone cannot close the wide gap between the poverty rates of minorities and whites. This collection examines the socioeconomic status of racial and ethnic minorities, their experiences with poverty, and the effects of federal social policies toward minority groups from 1787 to 1987. Chapter 1, "Introduction: Social Policy and the Minority Experience" (G. D. Sandefur and M. Tienda) comprises the following subdivisions: (1) "U.S. Minorities: a Profile of Diversity"; (2) "Comparative Social and Demographic Characteristics of Minority Families"; and (3) Social Policy and Minorities." Section I, "The Economic Status of Minority Groups," comprises four chapters that discuss homelessness, unemployment, and the special problems of immigrants. Section ii, "Family and Intergenerational Processes," comprises two chapters that cover minority educational attainment, female-headed households, and economic and educational problems of the changing family. Section iii, "Social Policy," comprises three chapters and an epilogue that review federal policy toward minorities historically, the differential effectiveness of poverty programs in different ethnic groups, and current social policy trends. Most chapters include statistical data on tables and graphs and each chapter includes a list of references. Separate author and subject indexes are included. (Fmw)
Youth in cities : a cross-national perspective by Marta Tienda( Book )

"This volume compares the circumstances of urban youth from a cross-national perspective, illustrating the formidable challenges faced by young people trying to define their place in a rapidly changing world. Using both comparative evidence and case studies, this volume illustrates the common needs of youth throughout the world, despite the highly varied sociocultural circumstances in which they develop, and makes a case for the role of youth as creative social assets and positive forces for social change."--Jacket
Hispanics and the future of America( Book )

11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hispanics and the Future of America presents details of the complex story of a population that varies in many dimensions, including national origin, immigration status, and generation. The papers in this volume draw on a wide variety of data sources to describe the contours of this population, from the perspectives of history, demography, geography, education, family, employment, economic well-being, health, and political engagement. They provide a source of information for researchers, policy makers, and others who want to better understand the fast-growing and diverse population that we call "Hispanic.""--Jacket
The color of opportunity : pathways to family, welfare, and work by Haya Stier( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The culmination of a six-year collaboration analyzing the Urban Poverty and Family Life Survey of Chicago, The Color of Opportunity is the first major work to compare Chicago's inner city minorities with national populations of similar race and ethnicity from a life course perspective. The authors find that blacks, whites, Mexicans, and Puerto Ricans living in poor neighborhoods differ in their experiences with early material deprivation and the lifetime disadvantages that accumulate - but they do not differ much from the urban poor in their family formation, welfare participation, or labor force attachment. Stier and Tienda find little evidence for ghetto-specific behavior, but they document the myriad ways color still restricts economic opportunity."--Jacket
Ethnicity and causal mechanisms by Michael Rutter( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research clearly indicates that ethnic groups differ significantly on levels of mental and physical health, antisocial behavior, and educational attainment. This book explains these variations among ethnic groups with respect to their psychological and social functioning and tests competing hypotheses about the mechanisms that might cause the functioning to be better, worse, or different in pattern from other groups. Attention is paid to educational attainments, antisocial behavior, schizophrenia and suicide, and to the complex and changing patterns of ethnic identity. The book also focuses on evidence on risk and protective factors that is used systematically to ask whether such factors might account for the differences in both migration histories and ethnic mixture. It concludes with a discussion of the multiple meanings of ethnicity, the major variations among ethnic groups, and the policy implications of the findings discussed in the book
