Remaining Off Welfare in the 1990s: The Influence of Public Policy and Economic Conditions
Sandra Hofferth (au); Stephen Stanhope (au); Kathleen Mullan Harris (au)
Evaluates the association between welfare policies implemented by states in the early to mid-1990s and the rate at which mothers who have previously been recipients reenter AFDC. Returns to AFDC in the 1990s are lower than they were in the 1980s; returns were slower in the 1993-96 period than in the 1989-92 period. Neither time limits, work requirements, sanctions, or earnings disregards was related to reentry during this early period of welfare reform. The effects of the economy were significant; higher state unemploy. rates were assoc. with faster returns to AFDC. AFDC benefit levels were also assoc. with faster returns, but the effects were small. Earnings rose little for women and 40% were still living in poverty 2 years after leaving AFDC. Illus.
