This dissertation presents the results of three investigations of child poverty in New Mexico. Chapter two examines the role income disparity plays in exacerbating the health consequences of poverty by investigating the connection between income disparity and morbidity and mortality in children. Chapter three uses 1999 survey data to examine the determinants of preventative care and usual source of healthcare for insured children in New Mexico. Finally, chapter four presents the results of simulations conducted for several proposed tax-based programs designed to decrease child poverty.
