Summary
"Using data from National Survey of Families and Households, Frances Goldscheider and Calvin Goldscheider investigate how gender, ethnicity, religion, economic class, and region influence the transition to adulthood. Their analysis also ties in the importance of the following social factors: major revolutions in gender patterns, changes in race relations, ethnic assimilation, regional redistribution patterns, the emergence of a middle class." "In addition to evaluating the process of residential independence, this book also examines the patterns of young adults who return to the parental home. Scholars in family studies, sociology of the family, human relations, social psychology, and gender studies will find this study empirically rich and useful."--Jacket
