Abstract

Family institutions govern the biological reproduction of a society, and through them many of the economic and emotional needs of human beings are met. Much of the interaction in the families of racial and cultural minorities parallels that in other American families, but minority status does have some effects on family life. In this chapter, following a discussion of fertility levels, we shall consider black families, Mexican American families, Puerto Rican families, American Indian families, and finally intermarriage.
