Summary

This paper describes the economic status of the African American family in Cleveland (Ohio) and in the United states as a whole and describes a model of interactions of social forces and economic factors that have influenced the declining earnings of African American families. The proportion of African American families in poverty in the United States climbed from 20 per cent in 1969 to nearly 30 percent in 1994, and in Cleveland, the poverty rate has risen in a similar fashion. In the same period, the black unemployment rate has doubled. Some phenomena that have major roles in the economic well-being of African American families are the ongoing restructuring of the economy, crime and the incarceration of African American males, family structure, demographic trends in gender ratios, and continuing educational failures. The proposed model includes these factors, but does not include racism and the part it plays in the economic status of African American families. An appendix contains supporting tables and figures. (Contains 15 figures, 5 tables, and 22 references.) (SLD)
