The structure, functions and everyday practices of families have changed considerably due to the impact of the demographic, social and economic transformations which have taken place in Latin America. This article begins by describing the complexity and diversity of urban families, on the basis of quantitative data. It then analyses the material conditions through which families have passed and the new approach to these changes. Particular emphasis is placed on such matters as female heads of household and poverty, intra-family violence, and the economic contributions of women and children to the household and to society.
