Data from the 1999 National Survey of America's Families indicates that 58 percent of children in relative care live with a grandparent.  Children in grandparent care are more likely to live with a caregiver who is older and has less formal education than children living with other relatives.  More children in grandparent care than in other relative care live with a caregiver experiencing poverty and health problems. But caregiver struggles with housing and child care appear to be less for children living with grandparents than for children living with other relatives.
