Description
  • The Federation for Community Planning was interested in understanding factors leading to the use of welfare benefits. For some individuals, entry into the Aid to Dependent Children (AFDC) program for the first time may be precipitated by specific events such as loss of a job, birth of a child, or change in family structure. Such situations may resolve themselves and eliminate the need for AFDC in a relatively short period. For other individuals, there may not be a single precipitating event, instead welfare dependency may be a result of prolonged unemployment and family difficulties. The purpose of this analysis is to identify some of the circumstances surrounding welfare entry and to determine whether they are predictive of how long individuals will receive benefits.
