    Like I mentioned below, I think this study should be taken with a grain of salt, but given that, I think my family would have fallen into their "progressive" category, except that we were poor. My mother was very liberal but worked all the time and wasn't able to engage in the level of parenting she'd have wanted to.

    I think this describes the majority of families living in poverty (regardless of whether parents are liberal or conservative or immigrants). I guess what I'm saying is that poverty acts like a separate dimension to the values dimension (liberal vs conservative).
