Socioeconomic beliefs about the appropriate age for initiating toilet training

A study was done recently which surveyed a number of parents across different socioeconomic and racial backgrounds - and differences were definitely noted between the groups.

The entire group of parents felt that the average age at which toilet training should be initiated was 20.6 months, with a range between 6 to 48 months. White/Caucasian parents, on the other hand, believed that potty training should be started at a considerably later age (25.4 months) compared with both African-American parents (18.2 months) and parents of other races (19.4 months). Other factors which determined when parents believe it is time to initiate toilet training were race and higher income. Higher income equaled later training, and lower incomes were correlated with earlier training. Perhaps the possibility of not having to pay for diapers was incentive for the lower-income parents to get the process done earlier.
