In Reply We are delighted that our article1 has continued to increase interest in the ways that growing up in poor families affects children’s health and development. We welcome the Letters to the Editor appearing in this issue of JAMA Pediatrics and concur that the experiences described by the authors are important components of impoverished environments. However, we are not as certain as the authors that any single factor irrefutably explains the results that we found.
