Description

The welfare rolls have fallen by almost half since welfare reform abolished Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) in 1994. The American Prospect analyzes the Census Bureau's Current Population Survey (CPS) to determine whether single mothers are better or worse of than they were before welfare reform. They found that while most women were better off and many had found jobs, a large majority weren't. Also, many women who'd found jobs had a difficult time finding child care.
