Mitigating Poverty through Extended Family Households

In other cultures, it is quite common to live with your family and extended family well in to adulthood, and even until marriage. In the US this sort of life style, or return to this life style is seen less as collectivism and more as failure to launch. Because of the social and racial ties to this behavior, this sort of mindset can be hurtful to many underserved populations.

Nature and Context

In times of hardship, moving in with family is one strategy for alleviating economic deprivation and uncertainty. The ability of the family to buffer against poverty may vary by the resources available to and the economic needs of individuals. The formation of extended-family households can be associated with a move into or out of poverty and how this association varies by race and ethnicity, since economic resources and norms around extended-family households differ.
