This study was exploratory in nature and dealt with the management practices of selected low-income families with dependent children in San Jacinto County, Texas. This study was designed to determine: 1. the extent to which good management practices were used in the handling of money and non-money resources available to the families. 2. the resources available to these families for consumption needs. 3. evidences of mismanagement in the use of money and non-money resources. 4. the perception of and attitudes about family situations as expressed by all family members. 5. the usefulness of data to subsequent studies concerned with low-income families.
An interview schedule, utilizing two concepts -- (1) the structure, content, and process of the family situations; and (2) family functioning from the point of view of management -- as a basic guide was developed for use in the collection of data.
