The Income Dynamics of the Poor: Project Report.
Levy, Frank; And Others
This report contains eight papers which summarize a two-year research project that examined the income dynamics of poor families. The empirical work is based upon the National Longitudinal Surveys of the Michigan Survey Research Center, a special sample of 3,000 Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) families conducted by the authors, the 1967 Survey of Economic Opportunity, and the Census Employment Survey. The areas of investigation include the extent to which people move in and out of poverty and the welfare system over time and the relationship between public service jobs and the poverty population. The project examines the characteristics of families which stay in poverty over long periods of time and looks at the factors associated with family transition from dependence on welfare. How transfer policies affect household behavior, the best procedure for evaluating poverty, and the effect of manpower policies on the welfare of disadvantaged households are also covered in the report.
