Survey: Number of White Single Mothers Leading Households in Poverty on Rise

A new “economic insecurity” survey found that for the first time since 1975, “the number of white single-mother households living in poverty with children surpassed or equaled black ones in the past decade.”

According to details from a RANK survey that the Associated Press revealed last week, the increase in households led by single white mothers was due to “job losses and faster rates of out-of-wedlock births among whites. “

“White single-mother families in poverty stood at nearly 1.5 million in 2011, comparable to the number for blacks,” the survey found. “Hispanic single-mother families in poverty trailed at 1.2 million.”
