This paper compares poverty rates for female-headed families and for other families in a number of developed countries. The author concludes that there are many different reasons female-headed families suffer relatively greater poverty in some countries but not in other countries. One implication of this analysis is that it is less important what gets done to help female-headed families, and more important that some policy be implemented to benefit female-headed families.
